"The white background represents nothing. The black mark represents something. It's the clearest expression of mankind leaving traces in a given environment, and thereby irreversibly altering this environment."

The Use Case Black MDF, white and blue Styrofoam TAC Eindhoven

“Do you see the screen? We are in the conference room where our customers are waiting. We have an interactive screen at our entrance, and this is the welcome screen: please pick up a dev-kit to learn more. So we can pick up a developer kit and I will have an information about that particular object.”

"If you keep silent too long... It's like stagnant water - when it starts to form, everything rots. That's what is happening in this house. Something's rotten here. And yet I thought it was paradise itself that first time I saw you come here. It was a Sunday morning. I stood there - gazing into these rooms."

"The two heads raised on plinths to the height of a modestly sized viewer are identical plaster casts of a Roman copy of an earlier Hellenistic bust. The busts show the heads slightly at an angle to the body, their faces turned to reflect each other precisely. This slightly sideways glance lends a degree of animation to what would otherwise be a static mirroring."
