Artist Statement:


    In the sculptural installation, The Unbearable Lightness and Heaviness of Being, rapid prototyping machines were used to print the 3D forms, which were then installed in unique formations with other natural materials.This work contains conceptual and formal contradictions. Conceptually, it embodies an existence of opposing forces – depicting organisms in flight, but rooted. Structurally, the natural and synthetic are fused; fragile, intricate forms made of plastic and advanced digital technologies are juxtaposed with organic matter.
