Rope of glass, which is a kind of a material impossibility. Inspired by the Japanese bondage practice Shibari - amalgamating control and submission. The work is influenced by Jomon culture as well. Ropes bear controversial meanings (i.e. violence and safety). I want to investigate the concept of freedom and the conflict between extreme materialism and fragility which glass represents. Technically I sculpted from real rope and burned it out to fill the mold with glass. "Follow Me" started as a part of the installation I created for Mindcraft18 -Danish exhibition during Milano Design Week. Work was shown in South Korea "Crafted Matter "at Cheongju Craft Biennale and Kunsthal Charlottenborg "The Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2020" Photo Credit: Kurt Rodahl Hoppe created at VAK.
