About the theme: What strikes me most about flea markets are all the memories that are stored there. I wanted to work with the "consumer society/recycle"- theme from that point of view. The memories left behind were what intrigued me. This was the startingpoint for me.
About the result: I put together pieces out of my own scrap, they are kind of abstractions of memories. I used my leftover silver, the discarded pieces and the spaces in between forms sawed out. The pieces that lay in the "silver junk bin".
You never know what piece of your life is selected to be remembered, it's not as you can chose only the most lovely parts for keeping. But when you look closer the "space in between" can be really beautiful, too. The parts of your life that were only there without no significanse at the time. Nothing particularly interesting said or done... Just ordinary life passing by. In the end, maybe this space inbetween exiting events are really what you cherish. The things that seemed to be nothing at the time.
