The subdivision into small units of measurement, the cutting up and melting again serve as a possibility to capture the (invisible) space of a glass plate and to make it tangible.

The middle plate of three superimposed glass panes is used as a ‘drawing surface’: it is cut into small units. The edges of these small pieces of glass are marked with a white touch-up pen before they are put back together to form a unit like in a puzzle.

The subsequent melting process (which returns the glass to its liquid state) does not burn the white lacquer lines, but changes their shape. Air bubbles rise through the separating edges and bend and twist the originally straight line. The air bubbles remain on the surface of the glass and give the work a further structure.
