When traveling with Lisa, you see the old familiar world from a different angle. “Look, a Tyrannosaur!” I look up and all I can see is a cloudy sky. But then suddenly, I can see a cloud-dinosaur for a moment, before it dissolves. On an old weathered wall of a ruin, she discovers a robot-head, which I recognize after five minutes of intense staring. But I have to give up on the lion-outline on the living room floor. Apparently, my imagination cant cope with Lisa’s.
Sometimes I think it must be exhausting to walk around so overstimulated – like a never ending LSD-trip. But Lisa presents her discoveries with such childlike enthusiasm that I discard that thought again. It doesn't seem to exhaust her, rather it seems to boost her energy. That imaginative power that most people lose when they grow up – in Lisa it lives on.
Therefore it makes sense that Lisa chose a profession where she can transform that power into two- and three-dimensional forms. Now, dinosaur, robot and Lion come to live again, on grattage-paper, fabric, clay, photo composition, plaster and Styrofoam – so that everybody can take part in Lisa’s world.
