MA work

A research within the unexpected, using the unfamiliar characteristics of materials. Leaving space for the surprise… sometimes receiving answers without asking questions.

The objects are trying to be part of an imaginary world, where 'things' can decide when to go on, what to become or who to be owned by and not the other way around. Attempting to show beauty beyond 'injured' surfaces, they are able to find the familiar look that sees and the words that say something about them.
