‘the cosmic landscape appears to have emerged from a digital laval flow of light…out of a ceiling, out of a wall, out of a floor… releasing its complex shape as algorythmic air… liberated into free space it seems to cool into a complex three dimensional sponge of light… appearing dematerialized so its edges blur becoming dimmed and soft on the eyes, changing its color, enjoying its nebula nature.‘ – RL

‘the cosmic mugg has its own direction… it seems to want to swim in its own tchnological light ocean… it projects light downward and outward light some strange new marine species… defining a new kind of relationship with the emotion of form and space, very very free in its concept and application.‘ – RL
