The different pieces that together make up the work Node are photographic investigations of a point. This point is not a particular point, but rather a non-specific denotation for a place where different parts intersect and new connections and constellations arise. The word ‘node’ stems from the latin ’nodus’ which means ’knot’ and has several meanings. Among other things it refers to the part of a plant stem where new leaves emerge and to the point in a diagram where a line is crossed or branch. Common to the different senses of the word is that it speaks of a point where different parts meet and something new emerges.
