'units of impression' , collaborative work with @thacks_ just finished ready for opening show Materias Primas @padastudios Lisbon tonight. The work features drawings on paper that occasionally flutter in the light breeze, revealing Sarah's text underneath...
units of impression
from what do the workers leave now?
a factory, so to speak, but a different one

real and reflected
. ‘units of impression’ is an experimental (/ephemeral) riff on work, time, place and film.
