Open House

The Open House series, initiated in 2006, contains small-scale sculptures. The objects are produced using different materials, such as Formica, wood and steel oxidation on wood. This series follows from a line of research that began in 2002 with the project A Casa (The house), which explores space in its actual dimensions.
