Mal-absorption
Video, 2:52 minutes, 2016

Mal-absorption was experimentation into the connection between action and form. Specifically using materials that would often go unnoticed in their original context. It began with the fascination between the forcing of one material onto the other creating a pleasurable outcome when executed. One material tries to smother the other but due to its properties mutates and springs back to its original form. Repeatedly the foam curls and embraces the wire, the pressure causes the otherwise unnoticed liquid to ooze out.
