WANG & SÖDERSTRÖM


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".
