Abstract [en]

(Re)make stone

Minerals are separated and melted out of the ground at a tremendous rate. They are transformed to be everywhere in our everyday lives, in the buildings around you, in the food you eat, in the supplements and medicines you take and in the smartphone in your hand. For every mineral based artifact you see, there's an even bigger hole in the ground.

I have mined the minerals from our surroundings: Manure, dyes, stainless steel, makeup, insulation, deodorant, pesticides, porcelain, preservatives, salt, anti-lump agents, concrete, silicon and more. I want to build a relationship and get to know, go from static products and materials and start mixing, burning, dissolving and merging. Let it react and become stone again. 

I hope my project can contribute to a broader understanding, new questions and discussions about what the minerals we have around us once were, are and can be.
