The real is a shapeless matter. The creation of images is a continuous attempt to define this ambiguous, incomplete, fragmented matter. Cosmic Mud is a stratification of printing processes and the reproduction of images. Every image depicts itself and creates a new object at the same time, in a potentially endless loop. The sign of a possible world alters and questions the relationship between the reality of objects and their images.
