SOFT DATA, 2016

 

This is a series of soft sculptures iteratively manifested from the shadow of the previous form.  Here we can only see a small subset of data being created from a stationary, artificial light in the site of display.  Although this work pushed me to think about the narratives embedded within materials, these minimal shadows work to maintain Plato’s argument that shadows do not represent the reality of existence. Stuffed with other fibres as well as blue tooth speakers and microphones, the work also aimed to demonstrate how other things exist in the shadows, including sound. 


This work began me thinking about how I might arrive at shadows that would be more representation or reflective of the reality of the objects that cast them?
