About Current: Consciously divining my immortality as waste and by-product, I test my practice and its materiality. Current is an installation and event using hand-made paper forms and wind. Generated by a commercial fan wind acts as the main protagonist of the artwork while the paper endures to discover new associations and sculptural entanglements.

The aleatoric composing in Current uses hand-made papers reminiscent of an ocean world full of leafy and weedy strata. The ten days within Linden Gallery set a defined rhythm of action and inaction. The paper's fragile forms adjoin our world in a theatrical performance of survival.

Destruction is inevitable but creativity live in what we do after the event.
