untitled (array) is an embodiment of alienation through industrial residues. The ears, that were cut off in the industrial process, are placed around an isolated world, on the frame itself and the floor, disconnected from the framed objects that it still extends into. When approaching closer to the motif, the ears are mutated, partly plotted with a machine, partly drawn by hand. The subtle changes of the line quality and the emerging array ({x,x,x}) in the motif itself, and written underneath the motif, with almost imperceptible graphite, becomes a metaphor for a 'syntax as form'. An industrial syntax (structure and form of code) that is hiding all around us, disconnecting us from cosmos. Earlier discoveries were made in the UK showing another kind of connection. It was considered against the divine to eat bunnies, as they were considered rare and exotic. They thought of bunnies as spiritual beings and carefully buried them.
