Deep Plush: 2020-2022
Laser engraving on velvet or coated textile: various sizes
‘Deep Plush’ deals with mutations caused by human (military and industrial) activity.
These mutations are in constant evolution like a ‘second degree’ man-made nature. They are far more easy to grasp in their transitory momentum than in their final or terminal appearance. They do not refer to a collective past nor do they project a perception of the future.
As low-resolution images they float aimlessly around on the internet and form an obsolete kind of media waste. I gather and personalize these images by rendering them into another system: strictly individual, far more emotional and therefore essential and meaningful.
