75P 2004
The machine is an iron construction on which a small rotating iron disk is mounted. Onto this rotating disk, small drops of hot wax are poured. The rotating disk swirls the drops creating a shape on the floor. The rotating disk is 15 centimetres in diameter and placed 80 cm above the floor. With these measurements, the drops will create a shape of approximately 1 m in diameter. After a few days, the wax will have created a thin cone-shaped shell.










114L 2006
The installation consists of a machine, which melts glue into thin threads. The threads are blown onto open structures of aluminium and thereby create a number of almost identical objects. The structures are attached to the machine one at a time, and as they are rotated they are entangled with thin strings of fluid yellow glue, which closes the open structures over time. After ca. 5 days of entanglement the object will be placed on the floor next to the machine. The dimensions of the installation vary as more objects are produced.











STONE AND ACID 2004
The device consists of a container for citric acid, which is connected to a jet from where acid drops to the marble rock. As the acid hits the stone a mark slowly corrodes the surface. The mark expands over time.
