In "Sunburst", the sunrays shown are derived from climate anomalies of selected countries from 1850 to the present. The mean annual temperature anomaly is generated as a sunburst graph. The sunburst mirror, a decorative object meant to bring a bit of hubris and divinity into the home, subtly becomes an ominous warning of a turning point in history. The reflected image of ourselves is no longer framed by golden rays of sunlight, but by anthracite climate data.
The Bunker Series
An ongoing series of parametric sculptures made of 3mm and 4mm corten steel. By strictly following the computer generated cell structure, the bunkers often look surprisingly strange and brutalist, out of proportion and form, like an improvised and randomly grown construction.
Cicatrix is a series of drawings generated from topographic data of open pit mines from all around the world. The voracious appetite for resources has resulted in scars of enormous dimensions in an otherwise mostly untouched landscape. A terrain analysis using satellite data was combined with a flow path algorithm based on elevation data. The result is a delicate drawing that contrasts with the brute extraction methods and relates the seduction of limitless consumption with the destruction of the environment.
