For the installation 'Geothermal Activity' lava rocks were collected from an area close to Grindavík, Iceland, where stands a geothermic power station. Infrasonic vibrations were captured from the ground, pipes and concrete of the power station and used to cause the lava to move and create its own sound.
'Traces of Lime' uses lime (calcium hydroxide) which is an important substance in construction, produced in Chile. However, in certain circumstances it is highly corrosive. The work takes an element of construction to create destruction.
