Same same but different – „Clusters“


June 2011: Related to the project title „Same same but different“ this work is dealing more concrete with clusters. Clusters can be discovered in all of those four objects, semantically as well as visually, sometimes more and sometimes less abstracted. The intrinsic connotations to the term cluster – such as feelings of security, warmth, protection – are set off due to the application of hard, spiky and rigid material (nails) and due to the black and metallic coloring. The nail in particular plays an important role to three of these objects: Especially concerning the mash-object only nails were used to create this shape-building sculpture. This object denies to be easily interpreted. It is kind of the very reverse: One has to deal with the moveable structure. One has to create own forms, figures and functionalities. Thereby the mash-object made out of steel leads to a never ending defining process – always keeping in mind that it’s same same but different.
