At the core of my work is the poetics of scientific research. My drawings show an investigation into the nature of matter. Working in a highly detailed manner, I examine and render the surface and structure of rocks and minerals. Extending the scope of this work, I have widened my range of medias, adding both sculptures and installations to an extended practice.

As the title of this text indicates (Samuel Beckett’s Texts for Nothing, 11,1950-52), my project also reveals an interest in a form of standstill in the process of coming into knowing. I have a recurring interest in how meaning is understood and transmitted through an individual and translated through the help of fragile and frequently failing systems of signs and symbols. In this case the symbols are the self made points and lines of drawing or sculpture.

When closely examined, a material presents numerous possibilities: of adding or subtracting meaning into the work, of information excessively unfolding or folding in. Studying a material, I find myself immersed in its surface. I am lost in a surface that is never a complete and even crust, but instead holds several irreconcilable, contradictory narratives.The documentation of 1:1 reality comes to a holt in a blend of elements. The drawings then fluctuate somewhere in between details and empty space, sealing an uncertain status somewhere in between representation and abstraction. The drawings offer a fractured and restructured reality – a subjective synthesis of information.

The process continues with the sculptural works. The sculptures stem from an investigation of matter done by hand, by constructing and building in the form of perceived structure systems. The branch sculptures are specifically constructed in the form of different crystal systems, and then left to collapse under the effect of gravity. The result is configurations that clearly resemble natural forms, while still eluding a fixed interpretation.

How To Print A Building (The Coming Real Estate Revolution) Ancient Lasers

How To Print A Building (The Coming Real Estate Revolution) Ancient Lasers | materiality | Scoop.it
Tired of these phys­i­cal con­straints, Enrico invented and patented a full-scale 3D print­ing method that uses a high-tech glue to bind sand. Enrico’s gen­eral con­cept is fairly sim­i­lar, how­ever: The printer is installed at the con­struc­tion site, and using a 3D blue­print designed by the archi­tect, it sys­tem­at­i­cally “prints out” a building.
