German sculptor Stefan Wissel’s (born 1960) minimalist sculptures are alterations and manipulations of familiar, often banal, objects and spaces. Based on his most recent works, this publication investigates the artist’s creative process and demonstrates how Wissel works out the aesthetic potential of simple objects, revealing their inherent beauty.

Wissel works with what the day has left him, drawing a diary with no text and no autobiographical claims. These 100 drawings, perforated at the spine, invite the reader to solve their chronology, or reassemble the book according to their own criteria, or place the single page with a life of its own at the center of their observation, or send it out into the world.
