In this work, she investigates the boundary between self and otherness and how it shows up within the material and how it generates unfamiliar phenomena. This work consists of a modular arrangement of waxes, rare earth metals, needles and magnets, hemmed in by the floor tiles on which they rest. The wax pieces are created by melting candles which is moulded to the form of the magnets arranged tightly around it. Dynamic relationships emerged among these continuous gestures. Throughout the process, I let the relationship of materials make its own logic and process of thinking.
