At SVFK Nina Nowak developed a series of objects that follow a function. The idea was to create a setting with specific devices that perform in a certain space. Time and fluids come into play when the interconnected devices transform the objects which they are containing or made for.

Before building the devices, Nina Nowak made sketches and 3D models to take exact measurements. The standardized basins, that are part of the installation, made a clear base for the following steps involving measurements of metal elements that would be adjusted onto them. A standard that would create yet another standardized add-on. The pieces are constructed in such a way, that they can be deconstructed like an industrially made object. As a natural outcome of the experimental fase, the original ideas were challenged and modified throughout the process.

At first the elements were cut in steal, assembled and partly welded in the Metal Workshop. Later the objects were painted several times in the spray room. The wood had to be planed first and then glued together. After a period of drying, it was ready to be carved in.
