Extruded Islands

Extruded Islands (London 2016) reflects an attempt to “place” myself in the city, while describing the unseen yet interconnected nature of compounded experience over time. The fractal geometry of the form also suggests transparency and permeability as one might find in the structure of cells.

 

"Dreaming of islands whether with joy or in fear, it doesn’t matter—[it] is dreaming of pulling away, of being already separate, far from any continent, of being lost and alone—or it is dreaming of starting from scratch, recreating, beginning anew. Some islands drifted away from the continent, but the island is also that toward which one drifts; other islands originated in the ocean, but the island is also the origin, radical and absolute.”
