SFS 2 :
The site for these works, was an over gown and semi abandoned environment. There were nonfunctional, yet strong structures; from these I suspended soap sheets. Out of this post-industrial landscape grew massive accumulations of soap, covering some sections and hanging from others. The forms were based on algae, geological formations, cells and cellular structure. The soap as a material represents a culture of hypochondriacs, wastefulness and is derived from lards and oils. The site functioned as a wasteland where materials have been made and discarded. Soap is a manufactured product for sanitation and sterilization. This fixation on cleanliness is becoming more and more stressed in our society. Between hand sanitizers and the hyper sterilization of hospitals and homes, we are creating “super germs” and weak immune systems. We are headed to a place where our bodies are increasingly detached from our environment, always being wiped clean after contact.
