“The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled. Each evening we see the sunset. We know that the earth is turning away from it. Yet the knowledge, the explanation, never quite fits the sight.”
Every spectator interprets images differently. Freeze framing at exactly the right moment amplifies the suggestion of movement. This process arouses curiosity and nourishes the imagination.
Frozen moments and open ends spark a dialogue between my objects and the spectator. This invites spectators to explore, to use their imagination and to finish the action mentally. The visual exploration of 'Freeze Frame' allows for questioning intentions, functions and sparks imagination.
My project explores this through a series of three furniture objects resulting from the interplay between process, suitable material, and the recognition of the right moment to stop. I capture the tension by pulling the mould through a liquid paste.
