Bronze, black 3D-filament, trampoline mat
182 x 145 x 159cm
Takeover touch many fields like the sea level rising, my concern about the future of my own kid, the darkness of the oil, and the technology taking over our lives.
I mix royal materials like heavy bronze, with light but dark 3D filament, and flowy yet structured recycled trampoline mats. I handprinted the figure myself and, created and bronze cast the mask.
It's a surreal poetic figure, the fragile child body (made from black 3D filament) wearing the heavy bronze mask reminding us the heaviness of the times we are living in but also our children will have to survive and the fact that technology is taking over just like nature. This child figure from the future wears a dark wave as a skirt made from a used trampoline mat which can bring memories of the joy, jumping in a trampoline and, at the same time, understanding that these times are ower and what is left is a wave of waste material which we should reuse before the big waves take over (drown us).
I’ve been wondering what is the material of the moment is everywhere, but we may not see it. There are trampolines everywhere these days and I have collected them as material for my works. I have received dozens of unusable trampoline mats from recycling rings.
