“Playing with subtle presences on the verge of absence, my work challenges on our usual ways of engaging with our surroundings. I create glass objects and installations asking for care and attention from the audience as nothing much seems to happen to the rushing eye. Reflecting on the difference between seeing and looking – difference lying in the active attention and intention put into the latter – I invite the audience to actively co-create a moment in time within my installations. Active spectatorship is at the heart of my practice as I believe that being conscious of our own agency to the world is key. Like Alva Noë rightly wrote:  « The world is not simply available; it is achieved rather than given», « perception is not something that happens to us or in us, it is something we do ». ”
