MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
Centered on the ideas of entropy and figuration, the Minister has a dual representation. It is a short film about the construction of an effigy from recycled materials, displaying it for three days, and then ritually destroying it by excavator. It is also a design project where the interior is at odds with the exterior, and cannot easily coincide. The Minister is discomfited and uncomfortable with its internal spaces.
