Blurred Boundary #1 (2017)

Carbon Nature

Carbon coated seed pods. Strung from copper threads. Hanging on a burnt branch. They clash in silence, but their contact is detected. What follows? Must every physical interaction have digital consequences?

This work was collected, painted and assembled during a one-month “residency” in the Hybrid Craft Lab at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel.

I collected these seed pods in the park on may way between home and the lab.
Painted them in Bare Conductive’s carbon paint.
Strung them from Karl-Grimm’s copper thread.
One day I broke off the branch from a burnt bush.
The consequences are still missing.
