CONCEPT With this new series of works DRIFT confronts us on a very elementary level with the things we surround ourselves with and the materials that comprise them. The work calls for contemplation on how we deal with the raw materials at our disposal. Everyday products such as a vacuum cleaner, automobile, pencil or PET bottle have been reduced to the exact quantity of the speciﬁc raw materials from which they are made, shown in form of blocks. “In what kind of factory do we live ?” ask Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta, with a sigh. For the viewer, other questions immediately arise: how would my belongings translate into these kind of blocks? What items have I collected in my life, and what kind of environmental impact does this entail?
