2020: Alginate, water, rust, steel
Artist book, Reactive Installation

Broken plates that resemble archaeological discoveries are being placed on a steel table. During the exhibition durance they start to water and wither, shrinking with every passing day. At the end of the exhibition they have nearly completely dissolved, leaving only traces of the disappearing process onto the metal matter. They are accompanied by an artist book in the next room that solves the mystery of these cryptic plates.
