Influences: The environment that we create and accept for ourselves has always been focus of my interest and curiosity. After having gained technical knowledge in landscape- and city design, my focus developed towards social psychologie and the relation between the environments of the true self and the wishful self image. During my stay in Iceland I focussed on this, given the circumstances of a relatively fresh culture and its constructed landscapes. On a global scale, I think the concept of the Anthropocene by Paul J. Crutzen (1933–2021) plays a role.
