The Condition of Air

Material research, Concept development | 2018

The ‘Condition of Air’ is an ongoing research aiming to unfold the inherent possibilities that inner tubes conceal besides their original function.​

In questioning the short lifespan of products I reconsiders their role: rethinking them instead of producing more.

Aims to challenge the common perception and maturing a close connection between disposability and reinvention.​


​By binding, restraining, framing or cutting, the tubes are reinvented creating an archive of inspiring possibilities.


Continuing the research of the hidden forms of the toroid,  it transalted itself into a serie of head pieces.


Commissioned by Lowland Festival 2019, The condition of Air got bigger. Creating an interactive and fun  installation.
