Bonfire of the Realities

Installation comprising 3D-prints, scale-models, found objects and sand, 2022

“Bonfire of the Realities” is an installation consisting of three 'pyres' made out of 3D-prints, found objects and white sand. Each pyre has an accompanying quote by the renaissance populist preacher Ghirolamo Savonarola. “Bonfire of the Realities” uses history as a toy and creates and destroys worlds like a child in a sandbox. Themes such as value, recurrence and reproduction are touched in a hypothetical bonfire that uses it's history to reflect on our own zeitgeist.
