This ongoing series of works on paper is made as a relay between J&K and is send forth and back between Berlin and Copenhagen by post. The paper size is determined by the largest format for posting a letter. Besides being their own body of work, these works can also be seen as maps for larger installations, sculptures or performances. In the collages ethnicity, nature and culture clash and merge. Human, animal, and natural beings are transmuted and transformed, dissolve or connect, sometimes using tools as means of orchestrating the constant transfiguration of beings and objects. Also traces of creative or mental processes appear whether as recognizable shapes or as abstract forms, like energy moving across the spatial field of the paper. Hands are reoccurring and make the handling of tools and relics tactile. Each collage suggests a space for action: beings touching, working over and modelling reality.

A selection of the series was first shown as part of the installation The Perfect Stage at Aarhus Art Building in 2008.
