We often think of people when we speak of identity. Places and spaces also have an identity. Mountains for example. Within the Atlas mountain range, there is a vast array of “identities” and feelings of spaces. All of us have probably experienced arriving in a place and “not feeling it” not connecting to it without … More A place has an Identity
The urban space – I like to tame it. It is best done through wandering or cycling, this gives a more human scale feel and a geographical perception than motorised transport. The sounds, the scents, the architecture, the layout, the flow (or not) are all part of the morphology of a city, a body in which we are … More The urban space
An artist’s work is about attitude and process – it should not be separated from their life. There is no life /work balance.

This is a time of year where stillness isn’t the first word that comes to mind. Frenzy is a more appropriate one especially in Europe and US. 25th aside where there is no public transport and it can give an impression of silence and stillness, it is often far from it. There is something to … More On Stillness
