  Work Details  
  one morning, my breakfast cup went broken. i was sad, and started to wash the pieces in water, suddenly the porcelain start to make sounds, sounds of porcelain breathing. i was then very happy. As the light through the window turns slowly to autumn, I collected some personal materials that remained from the activities in spring to summer, and brought to Berlin. Ash from the fireplace next to our tent, Rain drops fall on a piece of Japanese paper, Seeds collected from the garden at the end of summer… In my mind, I was missing an image of a spider. As a part of installation, she could carry on weaving the time. After the installation was set at the window, (thanks to time of the year) a spider from gelbe Musik appeared and joined the work and carried on with the music.
