In search of an image and material based language for the space in which words stumble and fall.
A way of playing - allowing to be unknowing. Giving way to be surprised.
Ingredients such as: the material and the immaterial, the abstract and the concrete, the living,
the inanimate; with words, with matter; with the process.
Learning by playing and to play, by rules the game imposes onto itself.
Artifacts of various processes, re-excavated and re-purposed as new beginnings.
