The series “Debris" is an observation of artistic trash, leftovers and waste as a result of artistic practice and a process of creation.
In this experiment, I made a series of photographs based on my investigation and reconsideration of the artistic waste. With a philosophical approach, I went all way from materiality to intangible notions such as waste of ideas and waste of time.
The main material in this research is a test print from the risography workshop, used and reused in different variations such as momentary collages, new materials, recycled paper, sculptures etc.
