“Puddles, Meteorites, A Surface of a Dinosaur Bone, Bronze, Grey Goo, Fat, Stone and Human Skin all have an aesthetic calling to de Joode. These things are explored for their material agency, not only their communication with us but with each other and their context.
Speaking of the project and its inspirations, Ferraro says, “Stylistically, 100%sounds fake, ethno-ambiguous, New Age, plastic, and readymade. It’s like a fake indoor rain forest in Dubai’s international airport with the most advanced systems to create sustainable ecologies and habitats; or the empty utopian soundscape of a luxury tract house community.

“Hitting it off” installation views at P!, New York, 2014
Take the classic joke of the ping-pong ball. Its resistance to measurement creates humor. The ball has known properties: colored white, 2.7g, 40mm diameter. And so does the player: colored white, 59kg, 163cm. Although these qualities can help predict certain reactions or spatial behaviors, truth be told, the measurable data matter little.
When the paddle meets plastic, both ping-pong and player resonate: they are part of the same set, they meet and select information of mutual significance. The game starts and the joke sparks laughter. Is the ball or the person being hit?
Another way to say it is: Hitting happens. This time between June Crespo, Philippe Van Snick, and Looking for words that aren’t loaded, a publication that stems from a reading group at Independent Curators International (ICI) two years ago. Here, directions are physical geometries, voices repeat and coalesce, gravity pulls and pushes, and display and displayed ricochet off of each other.
