Reaching is an ongoing series that explores the human intervention in natural resources and their degradation. It deals with the displacement and relocation of these resources caused by overproduction and an oversupply of goods.

With a focus on the element of water, the work shows geometric-molecular forms that culminate in an almost alienating mass. In the field of tension between the extraction of natural resources and their generation, the work takes inspiration of generators for the production of water, which are currently under development and will become increasingly important on a global scale.

Reaching explores the ambivalence of human intervention, the extraction of raw materials and the resulting imbalances on the one hand and the reproduction of the element of water on the other.  It shows alien masses rising up as structures that point to human influence on natural elements and question the relationship to water.
