The void is where the home is, and it is red, black and yellow

Installation, Carton, cut-out advertisement catalogues

This geometrical ensemble is taking inspiration from the visual elements Otto Neurath had used in a series as background to explain and highlight the number of human figures living in a household. He created simplified versions of visual representations of things, in order to make quantitative information understandable and reachable for the people who sees this information on paper. The colors used on the other hand come from the backgrounds of the advertisement booklets, which are left in my mailbox every day and are free from any visual and textual information, which promote consumerism, but contains only the color itself. The work brings together Neurath’s series and everyday life paper chaos by simplifying them into a basic form and color into an aesthetic and stylized composition.
