“The Set Of Matter Varies” that was presented at OBJECT Rotterdam 2018 is emphasising the beautiful potential and subset varies of cosmetic wax.

For the required amount I have been waxing donors and recycling the wax in my studio. The goal was to present the material as its pure potential, erasing all the prejudgments it has in its original context like gross or disgusting.
With machines I designed and made, the set is showcasing a physical process that begins at the elementary base with the smallest particles, a liquid identity melting and becoming firm again. Within the installation the material grows into shapes, creating surfaces and suggesting new roles in our economy.
