When I found Voerman's work, I had already been researching on victims and tyrants for a while; and had already red the myth of 'narcissus and echo' and was thinking in how to create this little forest, a small 'box' where you could looking in to and witness their encounter. I quite like the rawness of Voerman's little constructions, in 'mega farm' the being able to see all the materials, very much like if he just found them on the floor and then made this and in 'host 3' hos it sort of grows in many directions.
