Weighing Words-Laundering

MP Soap, Laundry and Multi-channel video, Dimension Variable, 2020

The simplest way of measuring the passage of time is by comparing it to the repeated chores we do every day. Repetitions of daily life that must be endured as long as the body is present slowly erases deeply engraved words. I made soaps proportional to the calculated weight of each sentence and carved the corresponding words into them. The soaps are then used to wash my daily clothes.
