Merlin Meremaa, 2018, Estonia


My works are based on a concept of rapidity. Something like pouring molten metal into cold water or giving a signature – part of this process we can prepare but the final result is always unpredictable, making every piece something totally unique. These works are made of thin wire structure – an very aery and fragile material which then is heated and squashed with the blacksmit power forging hammer under 5 tons. The result is like a graphic pattern, like thousand unique signatures handwritten on each other.
