The Becoming Solid series explores the idea of material suggestion. Pt. 1 works with this concept in relation to volume, pt. 2 in relation to surface. The material configuration suggests a volume, suggests a surface. It is not quite formed yet, but is just in between, something we find in the midst. Material that makes an effort to become something solid.
A play between density and transparency invites the viewer to approach from different angles. Different perspectives show different opacities through overlapping and layering of the material. Shifting transparency evokes a fluid solidity.
Developed during the PILOTENKUECHE artist in residence program, Leipzig, Germany, from April to June 2019.
