artist statement

studio thinkinghand is australian, danish duo rhoda ting and mikkel dahlin bojesen. working with sculpture and installation, they explore themes of epistemological aesthetics, kinesthetic empathy, deep ecology and the entanglement of meaning and matter. focusing on the process of co-creating with materiality, they facilitate processes that allows for the materials to act with agency, seeking to diffract various gazes across times, spaces, perspectives and scales.
