Eggshell panels

For me, an egg is a universal shape and symbol for the origin of life and evolution. My eggshell panels are spatial collages of goose eggshells, arranged in a geometric pattern. White on white. Light and shells create shadow effects, which makes the image graphic and dynamic. If the degree and direction of the incidence of light changes, the appearance also changes. The kinetic effect is an interplay between 3-dimensionality, geometry and light.
