The trunks I choose are old not only because they are thus more meaningful but also because they enable me to work on the course of time; not only on the past but also the present time since I open them back into the present time of which they become part. This is precisely what I wish to render by studying light and reconsidering highly, symbolic objects. Time comes to a pause…
