It expresses itself through forms and
structures called luminescent atoms. It expresses itself through
colours called blue, gold and magenta. It expresses itself through
light and is known as holography.
In my work, little by little, the definite
shapes of objects become gradually hazier, thus providing greater
possibilities for evocation. I view the hologram as an unlimited
space that opens onto the infinity of human knowledge, be this
of our physical surroundings or of our mental universe.
