At the Danish Institute in Rome I would like to explore physical relationships with surrounding environments. I propose to research Roman marine concrete, in light of recent research identifying seawater as key reactive element, as well as transitory sites in the city throughout history and today.I would like to take material and architectural development in Rome as a starting point to initiate a series of large-scale painted and dyed fabric works, using stone, sand, salt and liquids through various processes of painting and sun-reactive/photogram dyes. As a provisional archive of a specific place, time and action, I will seek to capture objects and movement (wind, splash, wave), to be installed in response to a transitional space in the city.
