Found old wooden beams are assembled to an object by precise selection and combination, without any additional sawing. The obvious materiality of the beams is covered by a layer of graphite applied under pressure. The metallike appearance of the beams evokes the idea of a cast, originating from a previously existing object which could only be imagined. Outlining an assymmetrical architecture, the beams describe a space that seems to have naturally become and remains precarious at once.
