the installation ‘spectre’ is inspired by a ubiquitous improvisational ‘building block’: the sandbag. the sandbag is
a pervasive object used in various situations of emergency and temporary set-up, such as battlefields, floods,
earthquakes and other disaster scenes. we are giving the sandbag a new ‘skin’ and context, which transforms
the way it is perceived allowing it to enter a different realm of existence.‘ ANTENNA
