''A sculpture made and worn around Linz, Austria, Inhabitant is about trying to find your own place or identity in a city and the representation of psychological space. The final form was influenced by the time spent in Linz and took on some characteristics of the architecture there. The materials in the work - cardboard, wood and plastics - were all previously discarded and these made fragile, temporary building blocks. Worn, or inhabited, this work sits somewhere between a garment and a sculpture. It is like a shell or façade, in which I, although concealed safely inside, remain vulnerable, without the ability to see and encumbered by my own creation.''


Documentation of the project is by Jens Sundheim and Mehmet Dere.
