Through small interventions Bas van Wieringen tries to shift reality into surreal situations, creating a new perspective on everyday objects. His material exists out of day-to-day objects, like sockets, spirit levels, pencils and nails. He wants to encourage the viewer to observe, take a closer look at reality, sharpen perception to shine new light on the things we are familiar with. Pay attention to the things that are seemingly boring. A lot happens when nothing seems to be happening.
