Original function – This series of sculptures explores the original function of processed natural materials within the man-made object. Through the combination of original characteristics of, for example, cut wood, hydroponics and plants the material gets the opportunity to be a living organism again.
The works within the series Original Function represent various elements of trees and plants. In Original Function #3, the artificial material OSB, the wood, is brought back to life using basic features of a growing tree. A continues flow of nutritious water enables the plants to flourish.
