lasercut on paper, 2018
books, poetry
Based on the  stories of deported people into the nazi concentration camps in World War II, the book  is based on the concept of absence.
People, depicted in everyday moments, leave a trace of their presence that becomes an absence once it has been dug into the paper. Thus every shadow is transformed into a void that is both a mirror and a container for all other absences. The choice to use laser cutting and therefore to burn the paper is a reference to the burning of books on one side and the crematoria on the other.
