The Ephemera series (2011) was conceived as part of the Ephemera Show, a duo exhibition with Ruth van Beek, mixing parts of our cut-out imagery archive and personal work. The series consists of close-up shots of paper, aluminium foil and plastic wrapping material. The esthetics of these images framed with a 2 cm thick perspex layering, mimic the photographical conventions of depicting jewels, gems and minerals.
