Conversing with Matter


↑    The unique patterning mirrors the always unpredictable conversation between the two clay bodies.
→    Allowing to feel the origins and processes of the clay, the potter’s wheel functions as an inquiry tool over the extractive systems behind the material. Footage from film, 2021.
↓    The so-called Jacobas represent a common archaeological finding in the Dutch and German rivers. They were transported and traded throughout rivers within the Hanseatic League, from the Westerwald to the Netherlands. Because of shipwrecks, they still lay in the river beds—footage from the film "Conversing with Matter", 2021.
