Since 2001 René Hildebrand has been retiring from day-to-day business and developing his own products such as the Pura Light System, the Puroo Light System (not yet available), the Cazador-del-sol, Perplexummobile (still in stage of development).
My path to discovering the joie de vivre I feel today has been determined by a lot of stopovers and a great many experiments. The variety of materials and things surrounding me has always played a major role in this process. The artistic and creative options copper, plexiglas, screws, glue, heat, electricity, light and many more offered seemed endless.
Then the artistic process was reversed reducing everything to the essential. This is also reflected in the Cazador-del-sol, the suncatcher. Now a single object was reproduced to be passed on. One became many. The vision of a sunfield gently swaying in the wind like a cornfield was born. The fascination of light and the swaying motion of the suncatcher create a positive emotion and radiate a joie de vivre - an impressive experience.
