2020, Sculpture: UV Print on acrylic, 80cm x 60cm x 20cm


‘Garden 3’ transfigures image texture data taken from photogrammetric scans of plants and flowers, re-rendering and meshing them together to create digitised abstractions. Using UV printing onto glass effect Perspex these textures are transplanted from their natural forms onto plastic, before being heated and manipulated by hand. These simulations of nature evoke curling lily-pad-like forms that balance upon spiralling acrylic supports.


Representing the entangled manner of the digital and the natural world, ‘Garden 3’ physicalises digital simulations to uncover the influence of virtual processes on our reality.
