The interpretation of mathematical ideas, nature, and the relations and transitions between them, are at the core of my work as an artist. To this end, I often combine different media and elements from nature in my sculpture. I aim at creating pieces that have an element of familiarity for the viewers and then engage them in reflections about form and the creative process.

"Kleine Fröschlein" is a study of a Klein bottle, a perfect playground for a couple of frogs to have some fun with a game of tag. Will they ever catch each other?
