Expired white is about purity and perfection which we tend to associate with white. I studied different aspects of the importance of white in sculpture, fashion, cinema and more. The materialisation part looks at the expiration date of whiteness. Discarded white plastics become new functional objects.

Series of videos and books, show how the authority switched from elegant tailoring to authority expressed by visible weapons, protective gear and postures designed to instil fear.
