‘Experiments in Elevating Objects’ (2012, 2013) mixed materials, mixed dimensions

For some time now I have been making objects that are ‘elevating themselves’. I made them in different scales and patterns and placed them in various settings. They are made out of single sheets of material. In each, a certain grid is cut out and connected back to the sheet through pins and holes. The cut out sheets can therefor rotate until they ‘get stuck’, held in a stable position. My aim is to make them ‘stand on their own’ both literally and metaphorically, as abstract things that don’t do anything but stand. They are objects for an ongoing experiment.
