When we enter museums or galleries we already expect to be exposed to art, so the placement of a piece and the background context play a major role in its perception. In my series, I wanted to erase the border between the museum and the real life by finding everyday activities that can result in the unconscious creation of something that has artistic value.

The first piece that inspired the series. One of the oldest memories I have is the one about my mom's habit to sketch patterns on paper towels during long phone calls. She often would not even look at them during the calls and would throw them away afterward, while I had always been fascinated with their unintentional intricacy.
One of the concepts I focused on in the series was drawing parallels between complex body art and casual activities such as applying make-up, face masks, or shaving.
