Abstract Summary:

My digital sculptures are born out the direct manipulation of geometry in a multi‐dimensional cyber space where material, as we understand it, does not exist. In the cyber environment 3D entities may be encouraged to behave in ways not achievable through physical means, being located in an area that exists beyond the imagination and everyday experience. These virtual sculptures, made manifest through 3D printing technology, are grounded in a material form and act as a vehicle which transports us to this strange and wonderful “other place” where unpredictable and surprising events occur. It is as if modelling space with light, in an
environment where physics play no part, freeing form from material constraints, and transcending our given understanding of how objects behave in the world.
