When fishing in fresh water it is common to use a jig and hook to catch a variety of fish. For example, with the same tackle one may catch a bass, walleye, or catfish without ever changing one’s lure. A jig is a rubber body which is penetrated and slid around the hook with the function of mimicking the fishes’ prey while also hiding the metal hook. My work is about the interaction between technology and nature which occurs both in coinciding events and devastating interruptions.
