"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science."

Albert Einstein, The World As I See It




The world as seen through my eyes is a place of moving structures, patterns and details where everything connects and disconnects. I feel most happy and authentic when I am able to reach a balance between narrative and abstract, between awareness and wonderment. The name OF ATOMS & LINES derives from my interest in movement and its connection to space and time - an ongoing exploration of how motion affects matter and vice versa.
