‘Aarde’

a research into raw material and its derived variants by means of focus, alertness, integration, implementation and application


Earth-slabs on a plint

earth-slabs needed to be created

new roots had been gathered

roots had been rinsed out and dried

remnants had been collected, sorted

drained and processed

more roots needed to be gathered as plan took shape

many steps before final step

many weeks of drying

presentation


Earth Imprints

remnant material needed to be drained

frames created / fabric stretched

drained remnant material removed

drawings remained

new remnant materials

new approaches / new results

a proces of 5 x 5

presentable, hinge-able, interchange-able

Research into Movement of Matter – a Loop Video

controlled variables: 14 stacked earth-slabs, a plint, a wall, horizontal viewpoint, an inside area, 3 days

independent variable: atmosphere

dependent variable: is there movement in the earth-slabs?

To record any possible proof of movement, one photo per minute is taken for 3 days. Observing the video the matter turned out to be stable. The in reality motionless main objects became instead set in a playground of unexpected subtle adventures at the same time diffusing and/or confusing the mind.
