Sculpture for Unique Board
Collaboration — 2017



Excavation consist of digitally crafted sculptures made of full colour 3D printed bud vases that are joined together with molded stone-like pieces. Where the overlap occurs, the form has been dug away. The series is inspired by archaeology and how it is revealing human activity, and the behaviours of their time, through material culture and shapes. The digital as an embodied sculpture reminds us that digital and physical is not two separate universes, but that in this era, depends highly on each other.

They convey mixed reality undertones by exploring how aesthetics can influence perception and how implemented storytelling can bridge natural and digital.

Excavation unearths digital processes with a human imprint, mixing timelines and blends virtual with physical space.
