(Interactive) Canvases is an outdoor installation of blank white canvas-like forms of fired porcelain where viewers are invited to participate in the art making process, altering clay canvases by drawing or painting on them. Nature plays an even more important role in the alteration process, since all work is displayed in the marine environment, thus exposed to natural elements of tide, algae growth, and barnacles. Nature thus controls what is left of the artwork, whether anything remains or is washed away. Potentially there could be layers upon layers of work created on top of one another, with residues of all remaining. (Interactive) Canvases are visible during low tide and completely immersed in water during high tide.
