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.

Point Of No Return

The piece is based around an anti-stress-relief act. In order to enfold the cup within the 3D print the cup needed to be placed inside the sculpture within a window of time of 1 minute, somewhere between 12-15 hours after the machine started 3D-printning. If the window  missed the 3D print would fail. 

We actually ruined the print 2 times, first because of missing the time slot and second by depositioning the printhead while trying to cram in the cup. Third time's a charm and now it stands here as a small monument of failure, uselessness and stress, embodying the cup's obstinate and pesky strive to "carpe diem".
