The multidisciplinary work by Caroline Jacob (1993, Fr) comes about through an intent of questioning and reinterpreting material and process. From an observation of reality to daily life activity, she reflects on temporality and ephemerality. 

The core focus is an interest in the evolution of waste and remainders. By questioning the origin and treatment of those materials she seeks to morph its final outlook. Transposition, transformation and reuse are systems she often uses to revive or extend poor and discredited materials.The intention lies on what the material consists of, its purpose and its possible re-use. Interested in both industrial production and craft, she tests the material on its limits and capabilities through a study in textures, components, alloys and colours in which surprise discoveries co-create the work.
