The project 'Frozen' explores the interaction of moulding and transferring. The important thing is the combination of the content and the inherent value of the materials, which comes to the fore in the process of making. Considering its own mechanical properties, which are thin, flexible, water-repellent and a high tensile strength at break, plastic sheet is used as a mould to produce unexpected forms, transferring a screenprinted illustration onto the surface of an object.
It is an unconventional process of moulding, to create a one-of-a-kind object using an industrial process.
