PARTIAL OBJECTS 1

2017, Video, 19:51 loop

'Partial Objects 1' is an animation exploring the digitisation of organic forms, creating artificial impressions of nature and questioning our relationship to the natural world. It uses photogrammetric scanning to capture incomplete scans of plants and flowers, which provide the fragmentary virtual objects.

 

These glitched and half formed objects, interlock and mesh together to create abstract and hybrid shapes. Their slow rotation references animation techniques and provides a 360 degree view of the objects. Undeniably organic, yet innately digital, the objects are paradoxical by design. They present an incomplete image that is as much about what is present as what is absent.

"Partial Objects 1' is available to buy as an edition in full on Sedition.
