“The word border comes from Latin “cum-finis” and, in its same etymology, indicates something that separates but at the same time unites, something that has an end but creates the prerequisite for the birth of something else.”

Cumfins is photo documentation of ice's performance on paper. Through the sequence of transformations, the artist presents a picture of the dynamism in which we are immersed and participate in. The work is a critic of the tendency to live in a comfortable space as a paper, we know the limit of this space and if we just stay inside nothing so interesting will happen.
The ice naturally changes in relation to the surround, and each ice piece will do it in its own way. It is a neverending process of transformation where everything constantly loses something that is replaced by something else.
Cumfinis is nothing more than a lens on natural changes.
