Verhoeven explains, "Products generally are constructed in layers, each having its own function. These functions are quite often made invisible by techniques that are applied on a microscopic scale."

"As a result the products' skin, its outer layer, is unable to express what's going on inside."

"This obvious disconnection or lack of communication motivated me to experiment with the relation between function and materialization."

"For my collection of gloves I translated the anatomy of the hand into material. In my wires I visualized the mobility and dynamics of energy transmission."
