The idea for the shit-maker did not come from nowhere. I wanted to rebuild the situation i found in bilbao 2009 in an abandoned factory building. The last floor of the building was occupied by immigrants. I guess i found a typical setup for any occupied house. One room was full of trash, a second room full of mattresses and another room full of shit. The interesting or for me fascinating and funny thing about the shit room was that each pile of shit had the same distance to the other shit-piles. Just enough space to knee down and doing a regular pattern of shit-piles by this.
2011 i went again to this factory for doing some photos of this room. The building was still abandoned and occupied, just a bit more abandoned and occupied…maybe also more shit-piles??? I got slowed down by too many nice photos. A kitchen with bread and a gas cooker some silver spoons. A television room with clothes to dry. A room with opened bags from tourists with all the worthless stuff spread around, a knee-bolster for example. At this point my partner already left scarred the place. I forgot the time, when you are scarred time seams to run. At the late afternoon the squatters come home from working, searching, stealing, dealing, fighting. Before i could reach the 4th floor with the shit-room i got called back from my partner. Somebody who looked like a junkie entered the building with a knife. See some more photos here.
