"What fascinates me again and again is the possibility of having a vague idea of a sculpture in my head, of constructing it, developing it further, observing it, including chance, possibly intervening in a controlling way in order to finally execute it by hand. There are no drawings, only a few sketches, I prefer the more time-consuming and contemplative way of building a paper model.
The advantage is that right from the start I am in three-dimensionality and can thus sound out the centre of gravity, mass and distribution of proportion and weight. Another advantage is that a model can be scaled - i.e. it can be executed proportionally in different sizes. I then use the paper surfaces as a template for the sheet metal blanks, which I draw on the computer using AutoCAD, in order to have them cut by laser or water jet".
