-----------------------------------

Based on the concept of repeating one form in different constellations with deviations that generate an organic architecture. The sculptures are an attempt to blur the boundaries between prehistoric systems and modern form. A visual record of time that is at the same time past, present and future, and offers a queer look at our relationship with nature.

The sculptures is a result of a deep research into the materials behavior, and attributes through a process-led experimentation. I begin by not introducing any other material or tools in my interactions with the paper tape, and this intimate look into its properties develops into a negotiation where I try to listen to the possibilities of transformative projection the material can take. These concepts correspond with my line of research into the aliveness of material and the many-layered histories they consist of.
