Passage (2007) is a sculptural expression of the inner depth. It is a transformation of our perception of the vertical vector. Passage is made of black concrete and the walls have a soft wavy form. Its height (180cm) prevents you from looking inside it, unless you look down on it from a higher vantage point. Due to its height, Passage forces the viewer to imagine what cannot be seen and to feel the relationship between the external and the internal.
