'N.T. 2000' is a sculpture made of two elements with red, of different kinds of stone: black marble and bluestone. They can be positioned in various ways. When repositioned or shown from another side or angle, it shows a different reality, all being part of the same sculpture.

'StoneSound, SoundStone' brings forth pregnant sounds. With Audio when viewed

Poetry of the Stone

There was a shiny crystal layer inside 'Poetry of the Stone' which became visible after cleavage. If it would not have been subjected to daylight, it would still shine. But the daylight turned it yellow and the sparkle was lost. I made a new sculpture of the stone ('Greetings from the Past, Wink to the Future)
