There is much beauty and poetry in ordinary things around us, like the shape of a T-shirt when it is not 'in function'. Or the way a hole in the street can be mysterious, with men standing around it and them being the only ones near enough to see what is in it. They could find an ancient burial site, or a plastic bag from Zeeman. I want to observe these occurrences and translate them, emplify or arrange them. Science is not just for scientists, I study the great mysteries in ordinary things, because it's not the 'thing' itself that is important, we give something value in the way we look at it and preserve it.
