working on a large colored sponge installation with luzi graf from our team, the laboratory and all the tools gradually became blue, a powerful color made by us with pigments to perfectly match‘ explains maurer.we used to hang our work gloves on the wall every evening, and this image impressed our imagination: the blue glove on the wall, something more than ‘a little voice’ said that it would become a lamp, it was more like a great scream!
