“Aesthetics are not determined so much by the finished state of a thing, but more by the attention with which it is made,” says Sander Wassink. State of Transience is the living expression of this thought: a chair without beginning or end, that grows apace with the found material of the maker. Pieces of wood, sticks, plastic, foam, rope, steel – there is enough material to keep giving the chair a new shape. Action and reaction turned into literal shape, a functional shape that is never finished. A product of human randomness, this chair leads a life of its own. State of Transience shows the beauty of the transient state.
