    All we ever ate in (Month)

    Collecting receipts that had been accumulated over each month of buying food and drink. Shredded, soaked in water and sieved to create a new object. A document containing all we ever ate in that month.

    Ticketing

    Intervention, 2017

    A conversation between two artists about life, art, banality and everything. The transcribed text onto museum tickets. Individually, in order and word by word.

    People won’t be able to see the whole – a group might be able to catch a short sentence. The protagonists, the story and the content remain secret and anonymous. The swarm mind of the visitors will be able to read the entire conversation. Each visitor connected to one another. Their time stamped tickets giving a timeline to each visitor’s visit.

    The Hidden

    Sculpture, 2017

    Revealing the heart of a sculpture in MRI like slices. An unexpected discovery. A production process gone awry. Despite the heart being revealed the materials and structures remain a mystery.

  2. A collection of shadows in the folds of books taken over the course of a year from around the world

    Publication, 2014

    Published by Buchhandlung Walther König GmbH, Köln

    In the folds of books. Reproduced shadows. Heightening the ephemeral quality of a book as a physical entity. A movable and borderless publication. Free of obvious geographical and temporal marks, yet created out of the temporal and geographical relationship between a source of light, an object and the moment in which a photo is taken. A merging of real shadows with represented ones. Past mixes with present, as northern hemisphere mixes with southern hemisphere.

    In progressed wood

    Sculpture, 2014

    The process:
    A wooden beam.
    A cast is made of the beam.
    The wooden beam is shredded into sawdust, and in the process, the wood loses its density.
    The sawdust is fixed back into its previous form via the cast.
    The cast is filled until there is no more sawdust left.

    A Room's Skin

    Installative Intervention, 2018

    Soaking A4 sheets of paper in water and then pressing them against the walls of a room.
    As they dry they take on the structure and form of the wall until - they eventually fall off.

    Many impressions of the room lay jumbled on the floor like leaves or flayed pieces of skin.
