How fast goods appear and disappear, what we keep, what we throw away, what we recover…

I am interested in objects and spaces partially consumed or abandoned that have lost their value. I want to reactivate them through short- life, site-specific installations and performances. I am defining an aesthetic of the temporary inspired from the various packages, containers and materials associated with storage, buildings and transport.
