Incense | Fragmentation

Inspiration for this series comes from manufacturing incense blends. The process consists of

1.) the conceptual and

2.) the execution phase

The second phase includes the acquisition of the different ingredients (some are gathered from nature and the garden, the rest is purchased) and the chopping up of the herbs until they possess the perfect grain size. This part is monotonous and has a meditative aspect. It empties the mind and brings new inspiration. The ready blends combine visual and olfactory stimuli. Each ingredient is chosen with intent and treated with care. The photos document the colors and textures as well as the separate components (flower, leaf, root, bark resin, skin, etc.) used in these blends and possibly lay down the foundation for future art.
