silicone latex formed and metal, size: 1:1 1996

Is a series of latex formed objects from everyday life. By hybridizing these objects, they are brought together into a shared materiality, creating new forms, evoking our thinking into new constructs of the senses.

The basis of this series is the hot water bottle, which in this context is symbolizing the personal retreat into desired  – or undesired aspects of – loneliness, sickness, comfort, sadness or desire.Other objects cast of latex like a telephone, remote control, tea kettle, vodka bottle, book, car tire, swimming fins and chocolate are fused together with the hot water bottle into one single object.

paper pulp fiction #4 – out of the blue

An in situ installation fabricated by using handmade, endlessly interchangeable paper modules. These modules are screen printed with the images of construction cranes and migrating flocks of birds.

This piece is part of an ongoing series with the same title; paper pulp fiction. The paper pulp is used to fabricate the material.

Looking at a mostly urban sky, interlaced by the filigree construct of the crane structures. These are interrupted off and on by migrating birds, symbolizing another dimension of the world above us. The construction crane stands as a symbol of architectural change and a manifestation of the things to come. Continue reading
