Brunswick's powerful architectural elements makes me consider a possible dialog between its external and internal spaces, finished and unpainted details of the original plans, recent derelict appearance and its renovation. I am interested on seeing these structures as a reflection, a replication, a reproduction. Thinking about the work of the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges who related similar issues in his short story Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertiu i will attempt a commentary on the ability of ideas to influence reality. I will attempt to find lost "objects" and constantly change them by moving between structures and cut outs of details of the building. I will use different mediums and materials challenging the physical relationship with the work but also the role of the artist's hand in its production.
