An Intricate Well

22 ready-hewn building blocks from red sandstone seem to have been delivered to the exhibition space in custom-fit cardboard boxes and are stored there for the duration of the exhibition without being unpacked. The building blocks were initially brought a hundred years ago to the landscape of a Dutch national park for the construction of a museum, which had never been built. With their initial displacement, they had accidentally introduced a species of moss to their new habitat. This moss is being cultivated during the exhibition inside a DIY-air-conditioning system recently developed by scientists to absorb aerosols in classrooms. The space is filled with voices from a phone conversation, the sound of trucks made by mouth and rhythms of stones being hit, all tracing the paths through which these diverse protagonists are connected.

Haze (Omnis)

Five wooden replicas of Wi-Fi-routers are installed at a low height on the walls of a public location to suggest a potential broadband network – the minimum conditions for modern office work – rendering a specific place into a productive backdrop by minimum means. The work was conceived for a set of walls in Amstelpark – a physical remainder of the soft-ware company IBM’s pavilion at set place during the 1972 garden show in Amsterdam.
