"I am fascinated by the idealized image like perfect constructions of nature and its representations - the purified beautiful images behind which nature is hidden.
Glasshouses re-create nature that does not exist anywhere and that is kept in a static condition and presented as a historical artefact in order to preserve the ideology of ‘ideal nature’. We’re creating artificial environments of visual character, that are catalogue-image-like perfect, where nature is the finished product to look at.
The idea of nature is largely constructed through its visual representations. Nature images that serves as a model for nature. I am adding to this ironic cycle with another idealized image taken from idealized nature based on idealized images."

I perceive photographic image as an embodiment of spatialized time, image that can give a sensation of time as a whole by being static and timeless. Instant moment that is not burdened by it’s past or future and that has the potential to exceed itself into the eternity of our internal experience.
