This work explores erosion and the disruption of form. Focusing on biological erosion, I wanted to convey the idea of a host being attacked and eaten away by a parasitic virus, highlighting the creeping spread of the infection as it corrupts the body. I have produced a series of angular porcelain forms, sandblasted to wear the surface and reveal inner strata. This aggressive process, contrarily, creates a delicate vulnerability in the shape. The translucency of the porcelain and the interruption of the surface make it possible to glimpse through to layers beneath, creating a tension between the seen and the obscured.

Taken form the TV series Revolution 2x14 (aired a few days ago). At the end of the episode there are LOTS of code, this is just a small piece of it. A few minutes later we see some more code running on the computer screen, wich looks different from this. The plot goes like this: Super smart google guy makes an AI, wich is used to “power down” the whole planet, and the tiny invisible nano robots (you know, the smart ones with the AI) prevent turning back on the electricity. So in this episode, the smart guy writes a virus to destroy the evil nano robots. Pretty trivial.
