• Possibilities

    A loose continuation of Most Common Element, this project further explored the craft of welding. Here, it was accompanied by other industrial techniques, including metal casting, powder coating and vari- ous surface-treatment processes. All components of the different assemblages were metal offcuts and scraps from industries surrounding Nordberg’s studio, which she collected and stored in a “library of possibilities”; there, she arranged them into objects with a variety of possible functions. Employing an assemblage-like process, and leaning on improvisation within a set of predetermined rules, the project further investigated the tension between the uncontrollable and the standardised.
