I bring you The Flux

Mariëlle Gebben (1979, Sneek, The Netherlands) is a visual artist from the Netherlands. She holds a master's degree in Art and Art Management from the University of Groningen and graduated in May 2017 with honours from the Fotoacademie Amsterdam. She is a researcher, an explorer, fascinated by the scale of life and the infinite universe. She feels close to adventurers, who unravel mysteries and expose new worlds on a daily basis, and to authors of fiction. She creates a possible reality, called The Flux, which she explores under the guidance of her soft toy rabbit. In her photo studio she uses paper, water, ink, paint and light to continue her quest for a perfect world.

“Sometimes it is as if we are witnessing the birth of a planet.” Eric Bos, Dagblad van het Noorden
