The Motherboard Project

The series “The Motherboard Project” deals with the question of how change occurs through interaction.

The original painting Motherboard is changed through the other canvases (Takes) that are laid on top of it; at the same time, it shapes the new canvases. The removal of paint produces erasures and new structures, for example. The result is a process of reciprocal formation and change. Traces of paint are left behind on the Takes, and these represent a point of departure for new paintings. The impression is not merely a transferred copy: It is further developed and thus invested with an individuality and identity of its own. Here, once again, what is important to me is spontaneity and the question of how structures form—expanded through the interactive process.
