Presentations The Passion of Working – "The Heat Is On"- Being under pressure can sometimes force a creative process, by forcing us to make a decision. On the other hand waiting for the right moment is an existential experience for a creative process. Bettina is working in the tension between those opposite poles. She will talk about that very moment when an idea, a notion and a material are coming together and through technique culminate into a piece. Only afterwards can she point out those moments consciously. The friction between Bettina's personal background, the stories and histories that accompany her and finding creative expression in her work form her impression of the world and her expression in material.
