We create imaginaries of the present and future through digital narratives. Occupying the liminal realm between physical and digital, we seek to combine technological advancements with sensual qualities to activate a digital sensuousness.

Between Earth and Cloud





Year: 2022
Technique & Material: 3D printed fluorescent PLA, UV black light, steel (various dimensions)
Installation photos by: David Stjernholm
In the ancient Chinese legend Pangu (盤古), the separator of sky (yang) and earth (yin), is said to have come from an egg. Once hatched, this giant lived for eighteen thousand years. When he died, the world we know emerged from his decaying body: flesh became soil, hair vegetation, his last breath became the wind. The parasites that once lived on his skin proliferated on the planet as animals.

Between Earth and Cloud takes this foundational myth as its point of departure. The sculptural installation, comprising two connected parts, presents a cacophony of parasitic traces, imprints, limbs, shells, and hybrid objects lit in ultraviolet. This black light, a wavelength undetectable by the human eye, symbolically suggests that life as we perceive it is only a fragment of the wider world.

Meditating on the inherent paradox of parasitical life, in which two or more organisms exist in a state of symbiosis, the work expands the notion of home. The podium, like Pangu’s egg, can be separated into two constituent parts that have an almost biological attraction between earth and sky, host and parasite, the analogue and the digital.
