I have always been fascinated by writing and printing tools, such as pens, quills and typewriters. While roaming through a second-hand store last year, I found a Remington portable typewriter, which inspired me to create a still-life around its story. I decided to titled it "Scriptorium".
I have to become totally familiar with the objects in the set-up, that lets me interpret the objects’ history and capture their moment in time.
For me to successfully represent an object I have to know that object from all angles that way I can use all my knowledge of it, and not just what I can see from a specific viewpoint. Otherwise it will be like basing my opinion of a person on a two-minute conversation, without knowing their history.
