Avalanche

The project was realized in a retail in Dortmund. The image of an avalanche was used to compare my installation and my way of working to the transformation of the surrounding environment. The distortion began at one point and then suddenly changed and rearranged the whole space. In combination with the outer appearance of the building, it all appeared folded and wrapped around itself. Inside the avalanche, I used common materials, like wallpapers, cardboard, carpet and mirrors, to relate to everyday spaces. The basement housed another work. Pictures of the room in its former state were projected on an installation composed of fragmented, origami-like shapes. Visitors could control the projections through sound and, in this way, move the space and alter its scale

The Book describes and illustrates the process of avalanche. It has 224 pages showing pictures of the finished installation, aswell as the working process and its destruction. It gives a look on the theory behind this work, explained through the image of an avalanche. It also shows installations of the past 4 years, from the first sculptural work in 2006, till this one today.
