Does not everything that excites us, wear the color of the night?
-Georg Philipp Leopold
What happens when the sun goes down?
When the sun goes down, freedom rises, a state of calm and freedom.
The night veils the everyday things of life and thoughts become free.
Calmness is spreading out. An apparent standstill of everything.
But the thoughts arise, surrounded by darkness.
Darkness as space
The darkness forms a new space in which other laws seem to apply than in the brightness of the day.
In this nocturnal calm, a fertile symbiosis is created between thoughts and hands.
Creativity that arises from the nothingness of darkness.
What is left of the night?
What remains when the night is over is what the hands have created.
A product, created by the connection that contrasts.
Day and night, light and shadow, thoughts and creation.
Equinox shows the balance of both aspects, a symbiosis, a fusion of two opposite aspects.
