https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yN9pioJWTk0 was an attempt at portraying a state of mind. The installation was built up of different living and non-living materials residing on a carpet floor, displayed so a group of plants had the best seats in the house. 

 

The work’s starting point was a depression, where the materials and how they changed during the exhibition were allegories for different patterns of thoughts and behaviour. I assisted some of the materials in their movement, as well as functioned as a caretaker for others. The work depended on my involvement for maintenance.
