“A ‘homer’ [«perruque» in french] is an artifact that a worker produces using company tools and materials outside normal production plans but at the workplace and during workhours. Despite legal, artistic and ethnographic evidence of their existence, silence surrounds [perruques]. […] this silence is not linked just to the marginal and illegal quality of these artifacts. [Perruques] shed light on a high degree of ‘complicity’ between employees regardless of their position in the hierarchy.”
(Michel Anteby, “Factory ‘homers’: Understanding a highly elusive, marginal, and illegal practice“)

Behind the Surfaces / Matthias Maurer

„Using fragments of building rubble from a recycling yard, Matthias Maurer explored how he can capture their surfaces three-dimensionally using photogrammetric techniques. With the help of 3D-printed and milled connecting pieces, which can only be produced with the help of these 3D scans, he tries to integrate the fragments into new functional structures.“
