sim | stim

Shifting between auto-eroticism and material fetish, ‘sim/stim’ proposes a cargo cult of sensual nano-alchemy. It celebrates temporary mummification of the body by engaging in an erotic relationship with shape changing clouds of synthetic material. Touching on the topics of body enhancement and death through preservation, sexual attraction is being conserved in floating silicone bubbles; flesh is suspended in ersatz aspic, comparable to an ‘inverse boob job’.

Plurabelle . Our Fires

In addition to pixel art and frame by frame animation, graphics in this video are based on various influences. The main ones arise from the underground manga, especially Maruo Suehiro’s “ero-guro” or erotic-grotesque style (to name one), that mixes both horror and erotic genres. Human passions such as love and violence become exacerbated to their climax, making the man look like a crazy and decadent animal, the whole thing taking the form of a macabre poetry.

STOPCYCLE

STOPCYCLE is a series of 25 small scale sculptures, which as an ensemble create a seamless 25 frame animated loop. The work explores changes of form, and sound using repetition through time. The sculptures shapes are organic and layered in form, much like topographical maps. The forms are descriptions of anatomical regions, as well as being formal experiments in geometry and motion. Their shapes are infinitely cycling, beginning anew once they end – they can be interpreted as tangible, shapeshifting clocks.
