WORKSHOP MATTER

My working material.

While working with material - and social engaged based workshops the concept Workshop Matter came to me. For me, it is having the same possibility of double meaning as the Printed Matter has (in the art world) as Printed Matter not only means the world inside the printed matters, but also that the printed matter has a value in itself, that it is printed and exists in physical format, the actual material. And like the opposite, the workshop matter in it self has a the physical format but also the inherent value - the historical value (what kind of material it is, what kind of stuff it's produced by, if it's used by someone before or produced to be something special just for this occasion) and the added value - for example: if I cut a piece of cardboard in the shape of a circle and say – Look! A magic stone! Then I add a value, a story of the cardboard, that makes it become a stone.
