is my way of dealing with and confronting globalisation. The venture – to produce 1,000,000 pieces of porcelain dishes before my natural death with my own hands – begun in 2014. Every item is engraved with a chronological number, based on the order of its creation, turning each porcelain item into a unique, individual object.


On the website every item is digitally represented by a photograph and its locations. Each item can be located via Google Maps.


A global trans-national and trans-cultural art project: The aim is to create a global network that will encompass all continents and virtually unite all owners of these porcelain items. The certainty of being able to make a commodity out of a piece of damp earth connects us with the entire history of human development.
