An ongoing project that looks at the entanglement of human and artificial forms, and gestures embedded in loss and melancholy. Steel and silicone play on 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 - a kind of flattening that takes place in the translation between the human and the machine.
