The White Matter

A block of marble holds inside: earth, air, water, fire and ...time. Sculpting a block of marble is a journey through these basic elements of nature but is also a travel in time. Wherever it may take you. It is a travel in the past, capturing a memory and in the same time a projection into the yet unborn future. Two infinitely parallel lines united by two arches could transform a block of marble into a flight, a circle of life, a timeless wave or a shimmering profile. Marble, the White Matter. The birth fabric for dreams, ideas and soul's images.


Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always long to return. - Leonardo da Vinci


the river is everywhere at once, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the rapids, in the sea, in the mountains, everywhere at once
and that there is only the present time for it, not the shadow of the past, not the shadow of the future. - Herman Hesse, Siddhartha


Insects are not drawn to candle flames, they are drawn to the light on the far side of the flame. They go into the flame and sizzle to nothingness because they're so eager to get to the light on the other side. - Michael Cunningham, By Nightfall


Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards. - Soren Kierkegaard
