Porto Slate
Steel frame of a slate pallet
23.5/139/107 cm

The partially rusted cover plate and bent feet of a discarded steel pallet the partially rusted through cover plate and the bent feet were cut off by welding and flexing. The pallet is reduced to its frame of a double-T beam.

Three slates, continuously split from a block and made from a concept developed from the metaphor of numbers, lie in identical layers on the double-T support frame. The principle of division and layering can be read from the long sides.

Stripped of its function as a means of transport, the pallet as a base has been given a new identity as a base for the designed slates.

Empty spaces in the upper and lower slate panels point to the idea of a grave sculpture.
