God used his magic stick for six days before he decided that planet Earth was done. On the seventh day he grabbed a beer and layed down on the couch for eternity, overthinking his new creation. Some say you get the best ideas while doing nothing, or at least you get some well-deserved rest.
I decided to make a sculpture of my ‘doing nothing pose’: laying on the couch while my sock dangles from my foot. An ode to doing nothing.
I was originally a pencil artist, but gradually I developed a love for ceramics. The extra dimension provides more opportunities, makes my work and process more materialistic and allows me to make videos and performances.www.martijnlinssen.nl
