Binarium

 
 
No Bryce, plants don’t grow out of the ground; they grow into the air.
— Dr. Rudolf Becking (Grandfather)


BINARIUM – all form and movement in the work is result of gestures and performances (no Photoshop). Using a flatbed scanner, I choreograph each plant by hand and distort it over time. This division from the physical world into abstraction is what interested me the most in this work. To myself, these forms exist somewhere between natural order, human control, technologic evolution, and glitch art.

Still daunted by bigger questions though – what does it mean for nature to evolve to the point in which it can indefinitely control its own evolution? This is where technology is taking us very very soon.
