Abstract

My creative work ‘The insects: mutations of ideas through conversation’ was exhibited at the the exhibition Practice in a box.
The insects in this box represent ideas. They are white because they belong to the abstract world. As in the case of Gregor Samsa[1], the ideas in different contexts mutate. This happens most fruitfully, when they are exposed to other ideas. When you talk, even more if this happens with people from other disciplines or using different languages, unpredictable errors happen. Through these mistakes ideas change. They can change a bit or a lot, sometimes they die. Yes, have to let them go. In any case, exchanging ideas allows for something new to emerge. The power of conversation helps us create the work of architecture. This box shows how the ideas in my practice happen.
[1] One day, Gregor Samsa, a traveling salesman, wakes up to find himself transformed into a giant insect. This is the beginning of a famous novella written by Franz Kafka, The Metamorphosis (German: Die Verwandlung). It serves as a metaphora and helps to explain the way my practice works.
