REVERSED EROSION

2010
KHURTOVA / BOURLANGES

200 x 300 cm – Ceramic carpet – CAD/CAM prototyping

Reversed Erosion is concerned with the ways in which objects gain memories and change through use. With great finesse, the duo manufactured four hundred ceramic tiles that bear an enigmatic geometrical pattern. Left unglazed, the tiles would render clearly visible each and any trace of use. Through time, the unique pattern of erosion would simultaneously highlight and overwrite the original order. This way, users are invited to stop in their tracks and pause for a moment of reflection and anticipation.
