work in collaboration with Martin Flemming

dealing with ideas on drawing, this installation was set in an underground space, and consisted of the following elements: 

framed texts giving a scientific description of an invasive animal species that created the world’s largest living cooperative community in the world, its tunnels stretching for a length of about 6000km in Europe;

a dot-matrix printer, printing continuously, in real-time, a list of transport boats sailing from any port in the world, listing all the departures that took place in the days the exhibition was on view;

a rocking chair, partially painted with the same colour as of the piping structure that connected the diverse rooms of the installation.
