Sand, with its malleable qualities, forms the primary material for the serial work Resources.The design is based on the negative spaces of various canisters. While the technical form ultimately provides a reference to the possible storage of different substances, its fragile appearance relates to the opposite. The work combines the apparent contradictory qualities of material with an uncertain future existence of raw material. While the originally closed shape is now breached, the moment of deformation can be found in the architectural structure of the work In Psychic Defence too. A definite sense of functionality is amiss and it conjures associations with fence-like structures or sacred interiors. Owing to a near gestural deformation, the parallel arrangement of the aluminium tubes is partially dissolved. The bent tubes are an indication of both an external force and the potential necessity of a defence that is in keeping with the work's title.
