This work is based on German WWII bunkers that line the coast from France to Norway, and which now, remain marooned in the dunes. Each unit, like an absolute individualized object, was flawlessly constructed with heavy reinforcement, the concrete poured in a single, continuous operation. Over time however, these structures integrated into the surrounding landscape, the sand polishing them like stones on the beach, shifting and even flipping them like beetles. I constructed transparent models of these bunkers, which I suspended and attempted to render in an absolute individuality, in a blank space. Yet somehow they continue to be affected, responsive to turbulence, sunlight or smoke, responsive to influences that also seem themselves to be disembodied, disconnected from the encompassing grayness.
