In the late 80′s and early 90′s, Tetris, the game of logic and reasoning involved us, entertained us and sometimes made us desperate to find the right combination of blocks and spaces.
The personality that we present today, creates works in a sort of game where the world serves as the level of play and all the objects are the building blocks of our Tetris.
The Swedish artist Michael Johansson from 2005, using, stacking, locking together a wide range of materials (from antiques to design’s classics, from junk found in flea markets to Ikea furniture), trying, through installations, to give meaning to chaos, following a simple rule that every structure is modeled after the previous one, but each form is composed of more individual stalls, where the size of the largest objects sets the standard for smaller ones, and at the same time the smallest objects are the basis for the larger ones.
