The sun passes through a crystal sphere
A rainbow's escape into darkness

In front of a small window in the west facade of our house, hangs a beautifully cut crystal ball. It is about 5 centimeters (2 inches) in diameter.
And every sunny evening when the sun is low above the horizon and its rays pierce the sphere, a fascinating spectacle unfolds in our room. Dozens of tiny, elongated rainbows decorate the floor and walls as they slowly float along with the sun until it sets.
I'm in love with this play of colors and I can't get enough of looking at the rainbow patches up close.
And now I'm happy to let you enjoy them with me !

Through my artworks I ask you to reflect for a moment on the nature around you, on the beautiful feeling that nature can evoke. And on your actions to support the wellbeing of the earth and everything that lives on it. Thus on what humanity loses when many of us continue on the destructive path of ever more greed and consuming. On how you can survive in this rapidly changing world…
