I'm interested in collecting as a method for making, and making sense of our biosphere. For a while, I washed and put on a shelf an example of every plastic bottle that passed through our house. Collected, these otherwise overlooked things aquired extraordinary qualities, and I started to research and think about why.
From Things to Flows is a written version of some of this research, it is published in The Ecstasy of Things: From the Functional Object to the Fetish in 20th Century Photographs, Steidl, 2005.
