Chair Constructions is a systematic investigation of construction, representation and abstraction of image. It was produced through a series of performative acts using available DDR chairs, jute hessian and basic Artificial Intelligence (AI) at Autocenter Contemporary Art Berlin on Leipziger Strasse in Mitte.

In this body of work, digital SLR Autofocus technology assumes the role of primary viewer, generating an immediate reading of each situation or instantiation. Geometric abstraction becomes residue of this displacement, mediating what is seen and reinforcing the increasingly secondary position of the human viewpoint in perceiving the ‘real’ material world.
