Change is a constant
Inspired by vegetal growth behaviour, these engravings adapt their shape to the environment where they are located.
The project examines the boundaries of time perception, by creating a series of images that represent the changes of the surrounding environment, focusing on natural processes which occur at different rates.
Our environment is in a constant process of adaptation, but our perception of these changes is limited to our perception of time as key-points. We perceive the passage from one state to another, dismissing the process and focusing only on the big differences.
The process simulates botanical growth by continuously expanding and refining its shape, as the environment characteristics change.
They log everything: snow, rain, sunshine and the little pilly things that swirl in the wind like tiny styrofoam balls… along with air quality, temperature, humidity and all of the classics.
All representative data is captured during a relevant time frame and afterwards, it is analyzed by a custom algorithm to create digital grown botanic forms.
The algorithm is designed to interact with the specific environment characteristics, producing a wide variety of growing structures. It becomes a living organism whose anatomy is modelled by the climate.
They become close to something as natural as plants dried between pages of a book.
