SFS 1 :
Material is of the utmost importance to me. Material is enough to convey beauty and concept. My work allows the material to act as it wishes and remains true to its identity.
Soap is hygroscopic and will absorb or release moisture depending on the environment. This gives the soap life, in a sense it inhales and exhales water, which keeps it alive but also weakens it. This fluctuation makes the soap age; it becomes more brittle as time goes on, until a heavy breeze or bump cracks it. This process also alters the form of the soap, making it shrink and curl. This happens however on a reduced geological scale, always changing but so slight it can only be noticed over the course of a week or more. The soap therefore in and of itself, represents time, life, and change over time or evolution.
