I picture our biography as the evolved structure of a village: There are roads leading to all directions from the centre, new things are built next to the old ones and the newcomers settle next to those who have always been there. Our memories are experiences that have stuck, that fall into our hands by chance now and then and allow us to experience time.
I am interested in the history of people and places. I ask, listen, find, collect, and thus investigate origins and change, ruptures and cohesion. My books serve to preserve and reorganize. We can read on different levels. And as we turn the pages, time passes.
