'Shroud' seeks to investigate the realm that lies between a material-history and digital-matter, through the combined use of 3D digital-casting techniques and sculptural materiality. Picturing the future of the world as a fragment that is extinct from human history, 'Shroud' explores an afterglow of physicality, extrapolated from the world and regurgitated as an artefact frozen in time.

Celestial Mechanics

Computer Generated projection, dimensions variable, 2008

‘Celestial Mechanics’ 2008, has its genesis within the structure of the wall that holds the image - augmenting the fabric of reality within. It opens up the structure and burrows deep within the core, to extend itself to a tropical haven but never allowing the viewer to get there. It appears before me as a geological fragment owing much to the geological history that created it. The surface of the material goes through a process of fossilization from its singular organic origin into a fragment of history that allows the sense of time to aid in its transmogrification. The animation creates a physical force that uses time to embed the surfaces of the animated objects and scenes with a material presence that is in a continual state of flux.
