Within the work of Dorien Laan, fragmentation and arranging of information plays a key role. She is always searching for a certain level of abstraction in order to find narrative strength. Within a given situation she defines parameters, and allows the image to be dictated by them. Images are no final goal, but instruments of observation. By highlighting specific aspects of life and by trying to visualize these little parts in a physical form, the work can be seen as a metaphor for human collectiveness.

- types of order are forms of thoughts.
