Trans|Form invokes liminality, a fluid and malleable situation that throws everything into question, perpetuating change and constant mutation.

A dining table becomes a rock formation. A vase becomes a sheet of metal. A platform becomes a lamp.
A plurality of different material and functional beginnings metamorphose into different states, changed conditions and varied modalities. The standing objects are in uninterrupted dialogue with their environs, drawing meaning from their surroundings while simultaneously altering their very parameters.

Each individual piece, restructured and reformed by hand, bares the imprint of a multitude of gestures, lived experiences and narratives, evoked with every interaction and following transformation.
