Tina Beckers Chair Series is an experiment: not more, but also not less. It deals with the question of whether it is possible to use the power of explosives to generate a defined shape out of normally hard-to-process materials, like centimeter-thick steel plates. The answer is clear: yes it is. Obviously, the created forms are not perfect, but they do actually represent something like chairs. And with just a little imagination, it is easy to picture to which results fine-tuning this technique can lead.
