We understand the world around us through categorization and classification. But things are morecomplex than that, life is mixed up, flowing and unable to stick to labels. The main purpose ofcorpus is to contain, organize and control food and beverages. Corpus objects are also socialmarkers that have a tradition of being elitist; in both choice of material and in that they imply acertain way of usage. Corpus objects are heavily loaded with tradition and rituals. However, eatingis a common experience, it is an everyday ritual and often something we do with others. How andwhat we eat is an expression of our everyday culture. The corpus object is a body on its own terms,and I believe that this opens up for an emotional relation to these objects. Corpus has the possibilityof creating meetings, situations where we can feel and talk about something human, through anobject. Objects within the craft/art field may go beyond mere objects, and open up for newmeetings, they may do something else to us than what we are used to, and hopefully they cancommunicate with us in a new way about our culture and our everyday life. I want to create thingsthat go beyond being objects, I want to highlight the body of the object, I want the object andsubject relation to leek and I want to celebrate the fuzziness and the uncertainty of things with my work.
