introduction

on this website you will have the opportunity to jointly create new artworks. the objects i choose for my project are ordinary things, objects trouves. things we know because they look like they usually look like. things we percieve by the surface we expect them to have. by changing the surface, by adding an unexpected, strange, unnatural cover, we change the thing itself. the material i choose for the metamorphoses is natural rubber latex, which i dye with pigments. it is smooth, sensitive and makes the surface changing visible as a gradual process.

how to do it yourself:

each of you can operate via internet a crane installed in my studio. the object in treatment will, by your action, be dipped into a pot of coloured rubber. your session will be recorded on video and can be seen shortly after the action. thus, the work of everyone of you lays the fountation of a new object, which will then be covered by the action of the others coating after you. all individual coating sessions will be integrated into an archive.

if you want to: try it out!
