Our memory changes over time.
The more often you remember something,
the more it changes from how it originally
looked or happened or felt.
A memory became a sensory feeling,
not always a fact.
How do memories age in material?
This unconscious transformative act of our mind
is depicted in the work “Physical Memories”.

How can we get a grip on something
that constantly becomes something else?
The collection of objects
that have undergone deformation and accelerated
aging processes materialize this

An inverted bench shows the block of air around it.
The bench itself is left out,
but because we have seen a million benches in our life, we recognize even the negative mold of one.
A shoe interprets the shape of a foot and the space around it
in an industrial way like an egg carton.
This industry often lets the purpose
to protect and to stack
determine the shape which leads to a
very alienated negative,
that has nothing and everything to do with its positive.
The third product is a metal vase
that clearly captured a moment of pressure 
that turned it from a reproducible item
into a unique one.
