Melancholy of the self ︎︎︎

Silicone, custom dye, steel, copper.

An ongoing project that looks at the entanglement of human and the artificial, losss and melancholy. The steel and silicone work plays on constructed schemas of artificial bodies, modes of replication, simulation, substitution and mimesis to reveal anxieties of the contemporary apparatus where the history of industrialization, notions of a body and dislocated intimacies are compressed into singular objects and where a kind of flattenning takes place during the translation between the human and the machine.
