You may not know Fedor van der Valk by name, but chances are you know his work. Fedor's string gardens have graced the pages of books and the posts of numerous websites over the past few years. When I was in Holland, I saw his works displayed in several shop windows. His string gardens capture the imagination with their suspended, unexpected beauty. Recently, Fedor sat down to answer some of my questions about his work. Even though he warned me: "My English vocabulary is not that rich. It's a bit simple," I think you'll agree his responses and work are anything but. If you've never seen his string gardens before, prepare to have your breath taken away. If you're already familiar with his work, well, prepare to have your breath taken away yet again.
