Foxholes
2011 - 2012

The 'Foxhole'-model is a dual reference to both a mathematical function as well as a one or two-men fighting pit in warfare. The mathematical function is used to test the strength of certain algorithms but visually resembles an interesting abstract form of inverted architecture, a theme that is obviously also present in the military connotation.

The sloppy and humorous sketches of these temporary one or two-man settlements made by the american army are in striking contrast with the perfect mathematical precision of the function.
