Flats #1 - 7

Flats #1 - 7, 2020


During a clearout in my studio I found these flattened drinking cans, leftovers from an old project, and nearly discarded them. Yet then I decided to give them a new purpose, a new lease of life so to speak, and I explored what form that could take. Only after I had finished my experiments I understood that these flat objects offer also a methaphor for the current times where consumerism feels like the ultimate goal and the only hope is to think anew.
