During my exploration of the Taoist mountains in China with their temples and monks, one of these monks named Xiao Yao envisioned my name
Shui Nung Yun meaning water forms clouds/ vapor. This is the image of a transformation proces.
This transformation proces and water have fascinated me and lead me to make Mirror of Love and other installations which incorporate water. The project Vapor studies has the vapor aspect of water. Also my paintings Fluids have relations to the aspects of water. In my photo’s reflection in water became an important issue. From there my focus shifted to light or the absence of light in all it’s facets.
The environment is something i care about deeply. It means I try to create things which help people become more aware about the environment and the impact every individual has on it. In my life i try to pollute as less as possible but the opportunities are simply not there yet.
So i decided i have to create these possibilities for people. I created Universal Connection an installation with Solar panels. The vapor Studies made of organic cotton, green printed with recycled filling made locally.There is a lamp project what reuses paper shopping bags.and I want to start a non profit to offset CO2 locally to create jobs and better air.
Why I am an artist? If you could touch the secret of life who would not want to? At least an attempt, at least a glimps. Yes,to become life itself
