I have created a large collection of plaster models: a collection of Obstructions, errors and opportunities that may develop into architecture. The models are fragments of different complex shapes as well as more simple circular models with different profiling and diameters. In this contect I have been studying Luigi Moretti's [1] plastermodel - "the Model of the inner spaces of the Saint Maria of the Divine Providence" - in which context I see my own models.

In 1934, Man Ray [2] photographed mathematical rmodels (in plaster) at the Henri Poincaré Institute in Paris and later used the photographs as a starting point for a series of paintings. This way of creating representations of something that already exists is for me to see a way forward in the "decoding" of my own models into other depictions.

The models are analyzed through a series of representations in different types of drawings. I try to invent the ways of drawing the models - that decode and unfold them into architectural fragments- into future buildings or constructions in the landscape.

[1] Luigi Moretti: Italian architect, 1907 - 1973
[2] Man Ray: American artist, 1890 - 1976. in 2015, I saw the wonderful exhibition "Man Ray - Human Equations" at the Glyptotek in Copenhagen, organized by the Philips Collection in Washington D.C. and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem (in 2013). See also: "Man Ray - Human Equations" catalogue published by Hatje Cantz Verlag, Germany, 2014.
