Maarten van Aken is fascinated by the interrelationship between architecture, light and humans. People are rarely seen, but their traces can be.
Powerful light defines space and intersections. A window is an intersection, a gateway, like a painting can be.
Such an intersection can be called a liminal space, which is the time between ‘what was’ and ‘the next’. It is a place of transition, yet time seems to stand still. In this place we van play with perception.
