Title
Whatever
Further information

Whatever examines the near future in a world that is digitised and mapped. It is a sculpture of a disenfranchised youth living in a cyber world, his existence depending on technology. As constant users of cyberspace we enjoy its benefits – but do we understand its negative aspects?

The work uses ‘organic data’. I use this term as opposed to ‘inorganic data’, which would be data produced solely inside software. ‘Organic data’ is taken from life and digitised by a scanning process. This process mirrors our contemporary practices of investing our living world into computer spaces such as Facebook.

I manipulate the data with digital tools then prepare it for 3D thermal plastic printing. The many 3D pieces are assembled and hand finished.
