In this work I am looking at the places where 'entropy is made visible', as Robert Smithson put it forward. He described a bucket with a black and white sand. When we turn it one way, the degree of their interspersion increases. When we then turn it the other way, however, we won't return to the original state but only further increase the interspersion.

Entropy is an observable increase of complexity within a certain system. At the spatial level, parallel to the bucket with a gray sand are 'in-between' spaces, neither central nor peripheral, with a complex mixture of variety of elements. If design is an effort to fully define the relationships between elements, entropy is its breakdown and interspersion of elements into relationships and constellations not envisaged by design.

If we then understand design as an attempt to deny entropy, I am looking at the process that is opposite. Here, the place becomes increasingly complex by both historical progress of time and emergence of spatial relationship between things that were originally envisaged only within their isolated, local and particular designs. I am interested in the relationship between banality and complexity to be found in these places.
