For the series Opening boxes packaging materials have been collected for months, based on an affinity for the materiality and haptics of materials in the context of packaging. Cardboard boxes in various formats, air cushions, shredded cardboard, packaging chips, complemented with purchased materials such as masking tape or adhesive tape.


Based on the idea of ​​having a box of contents delivered, which you open or cut open, and whose content seems familiar on the one hand, but unfamiliar on the other hand, a series of box objects has been developed. Each box contains different serially made small, abstract objects that reveal their secrets in interaction with the viewer. Building on the study of animism, the relationship between the artwork and the viewer plays an essential role in this work. The objects in the boxes require a connection with the viewer in order to develop. A play with functionality, imagination and purposelessness.
