Selected Headlines (2019)

 

Through a play on materiality, adornment and advertising this ongoing series of pavement signs translates discarded news headlines into lavish objects. By means of abundant compositions, vivid colour combinations and a modern marquetry technique, these headlines are isolated from their original journalistic context and freely translated into ornamental objects that contrast the temporality of the news industry.

 

This project is a collaboration with designer Laurids Gallee.
