Gilded and Unreal combines media and surface to blur the physicality and virtuality of the object.
The geometry of the surface is manifested through digital fabrication, then brought to life with luminous, pulsing imagery. Conceptually, the project proposes a new approach to ornament that blends fleeting digital content and fixed material form.
Gilded and Unreal was commissioned by the Contemporary Jewish Museum as part of the New Experiments in Art and Technology exhibit. The digital catalog for the exhibition is available here: NEAT
Shown: Contemporary Jewish Museum, 2015
