About Things 'When will politics concern itself again over concrete matters? Let’s talk about things!' - Bruno Latour (Ding politiek)
Our economy and comfort leans on things. Yet, in our object-oriented society, I find little attention for production processes, the life cycle and the role that objects have in our network. If the job description of an artist would be representation, I advocate to highlight not just what is made; also how it is made. Even when I propose a role for something I have created, in other times or contexts it might behave differently. Which displays how complex and affecting objects really are.

A bag of leather scraps has been reincarnated into a family of beings. A dialogue of sound, texture and movement reveals their characteristics. A playful child, two self-absorbed teenagers, caring parents and power relations; the imperceptible but recognizable dynamics of a family system.
