In the press:
'What there is to say, is that this reveals a very impressive level of artistry, that The Relativity of Matter is among the best there is to see this year in the Netherlands, and that I was stunned by its sheer vigour.' De Groene Amsterdammer
'The dark paint that covers everything in this entirely deserted universe is dusty and dull as if moon dust had settled on everything. Even if it cannot be otherworldly, with the desk and the cupboards and all, this is a very different universe, far removed from any reality, time or space.' H-Art Magazine
'Somewhere in the icy silence an air supply system can be heard, so quietly that it can be confused with the echo of your own bloodstream. An alienating force emanates from the room; the rhythm of all those bits of coal arranged on the shelves makes for an amazing image.' Metropolis M
'Once inside, the surprise is overwhelming. Van Veluw has remodelled the whole interior to his linking by turning it into a labyrinth of darkened hallways and dark rooms.' Column Volkskrant
'The spaces are somewhat reminiscent of abandoned movie sets. It is exciting to look around and the longer you stay, the more you get the feeling that you are hallucinating.' De Telegraaf
'The artist steps into a room that is covered from floor to ceiling with cabinets that have floating balls in them. The space is iridescent blue and his voice immediately changes into that of a robot – an unintended acoustic side effect of this total coverage.' Reportage Volkskrant
