    In November, Uta spent a few weeks in Libken e.V. to take time for past and future projects. There she met the woman of colours:
    Barbara, from Amsterdam. From the moment the two women met they walked for hours through the forest they called ‘the caramel
    woods’ and stirred through creamy red fresh tomato sauce with Bluegreen crispy rosemary while trying to explain to each other: Why.
    Why one of them has for years allowed herself to be completely surrounded, overwhelmed, moved by colour and the other has taken
    every stone of interest in her hand to weigh, feel, turn and look at. They kept talking, they kept pointing out colours and placing stones
    in each other's hands, but did it become clear?
    The desire to work together was vividly obvious, finding out more about their passion and the connection of it.
    They made a first publication together, and to their great surprise, the beauty of a stone coincided with the
    beauty of colours. And now, when they go through the publication, they whisper questioningly: does the stone show the colours, or do
    colours show the stone?
