../Matter and technique: felt, para-performace
DESCRIPTION: A mobile shelter for a person, a cocoon made of felt. This sculpture is a potential and precarious dwelling. It is a small capsule with references to architecture and biology (the smallest unit of existence, the cell). This project is absolutely low-tech. In a performance hidden from the public, f' learned from yaks and horses and their ways of crossing rivers and set out to reach the chosen place to place and set up his shelter, lie down and rest inside. By retreating into the felt, f' also adheres to anti-anthropocentric thinking and the biophilia hypothesis, a process of modernism in reverse. An exercise in solitude. f' has left his minimal abode in that place, for those who will find it or those who will seek it out. What remains of the work are some drawings and photographs, and a small artifact made of felt and bone inside which are the geographical coordinates of the monument.
