Demolition of undo performance & video
The context of cultural production and exhibition spaces has long been a domain in which MIXD operates. Although strongly connected, art and architecture are separate disciplines.
In the mixed professional practice of MIXD -due to the increased workload of architectural projects- there is less and less time to realise non-architectural, or free projects. See also Less ≠ More
The performance/stop-motion video registration below straddled the dividing line of various disciplines.

In the context of forces in which cultural institutions have to survive, uncertainty about their survival is a constant source of concern. Degradation of accumulated experience and expertise and demolition of (interior) architecture sometimes makes room for new rulers. But that is no guarantee.
This theme underlies the work Demolition of undo in which removal (demolition) is depicted by means of a masking drawing which is then undone by an act of destruction.
For the sky stormers who actually came years later, MIXD produced the design for their initiative, which involved the basement with the space on the first floor, see project ‘The Grey Space in the Middle’
