“Synchronism is a collection of three seamless looping artworks, where large-scale sculptures are stretching the boundaries of physical laws. Where my ‘oddly satisfying’ animations meet physical installation art, trying to capture a sensation of eternity; a feeling of something limitless and unbounded.
The synchronous and perpetual motion is the essence of these meditative installations, which together with the surrounding nature creates a beautiful and serene atmosphere. Going against the laws of physics, defying gravity and especially reality, the possibilities are potentially endless.”
