Magic. I find magic in mundane things, in those simple, “transparent”, taken for granted objects. I look for the unexpected in places that have become banal as a result of routine. This work reopens the obvious, exploring it from different angles and examining additional inherent values in it. Stripped of their functional context, with their aesthetic potential under review, the stapler pins have become a raw material. No longer hidden inside the stapler, they are directed outwards, creating texture and various fascinating geometric forms. The pins create a dynamic, playful platform – one can shift them, remove them or add them to the platform with a variable rhythm.
This work connects two transparent materials: Poly (methyl methacrylate) and stapler pins, each transparent in its own way. The connection between these two materials creates a three-dimensional space whose form, material and context I find surprising. It is a playground for pins.
Materials: Plexiglas bended and laser cut, stapler pins.
