This diptych sculpture (total 236 individually cut out passport-photographs) respond to the idea behind the positivist use of photography in 19th century criminological and eugenic studies. The work is not intended to mimic the composite pictures (famously produced by Francis Galton), which were meant to create one portrait out of various superimposed images. Our sculptures, on the other hand, are formed out of endless small fragments and so borrow the appearance of Galton´s endeavor, while emphasizing the impossibility of it.

Its so minimal and conceptual 
and it reminds me of a Chuck Klose's painting
