Before Us and Soon After is an exploration in the history of human. The body becomes intertwinned with it’s environment and undergoes processes of exchange with non-living matter. 

The installation is set in the room with 4 tons of sand. Plastic molds of the artists face are laying on the ground and the visiting children are free to play with them.  The children, unbotherd by the complex concepts surrounding them, contributee to the changing landscape of the work. Leaving traces that are soon to bee whiped out by other visitors.
