The ontology of materials as story tellers, as holders of something in the state of transformation. A poetic rhythm of becoming utopia in matter. A space with a set of different material combinations which presents a particular way of inhabiting space through the sense of transformation, care and rhythm. An alternative possibility, an encounter with a speculative ontology of materials and their belonging in fiction. The fantasy of something else.
I work with installations, video and music to generate those spaces.
