    The distance between outstretched arms, the width
    of the human thumb, a full stride (from heel to heel),
    the weight a person can carry, the time it takes to blink.

    Hmmmmm resonates between a number of references
    ranging from the experience and ideas about time,
    measure, perception, and some visual vocabulary of
    mathematics; the golden spiral, root 2 rectangles
    and human-based units of measure; Mater’s own body.
    Works behave like rotating and resonating arrangements
    of moments where time is both tool and material.

    Flowing over and into each other, revealing a greater
    logic by the forced attention of optical devices and
    filtered through Mater’s idiosyncratic way of seeing
    and documenting. They are oscillating between
    representation and abstraction, while trying to move
    into a direction towards which we can not point.
