Aorta

In Jungian psychology the ‘shadow’ or ‘shadow aspect’ refers to an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not recognise in itself.

The unfurled layers, textures and meshes of these 3D objects is a shadow self of its solid state. The inverse of it’s essence.

One of many 3D scans. I like the messiness of this object. The textures created when the object was unfurled again interest me.

And again when superimposed on other realistic imagery it gives way to negative space and inverse shapes.

Note to Self:

  • Explore these meshes in 3D form.

Bovine

Whilst scanning 3D objects I have become intrigued by the textures that make up the object.

bovine-1

This simple plastic toy cow, its essence unfurled and superimposed over real world organic imagery, its texture takes on an otherworldly surreal quality.

Note to Self:

  • Unfurled these 3D skins become the inverse essence of the 3D object itself, flattened and rolled out for all to see.

Super Sound on Dream Street and Destroy Roadmap of Ants

I like the simplicity of this piece, by Thai artist Arnont Nongyao of the Chiang Mai Collective.

dream-street-ants

Arnont Nongyao is a sound artist whose work concentrates on vibration. His practice investigates different means of searching for the value of vibration derived from connected things, such as human beings, objects and society.

We were recording along the streets of Chiang Mai after 6:00 PM, and we found bird-sounds occupying a traffic jam, changing the space and the feeling of people on the street forever.

His works involve specific spaces and moments of audience participation. They are connected with the mode of listening and hearing in various social situations, and with how people interact with and participate in sound.
