Artwork Title: Plasmatic Transience
Transience lives in the animorph – perceptually evasive and constantly morphing digital sculpture.
Plasmaticness is the term given by Eisenstein to the animated entity that presents a visually and ontologically elastic state of being. These protean entities can squash and contort into impossible arrangements, and can assume any form.
This project utilises digital sculpture software to produce a series of animated shape-shifting models that transform from one entity to the next in a series of bodies, faces, objects and abstract morphological interpolations. Transience lives in the animporph – the interpolations between the fleeting, perceptually evasive and constantly evolving imagery.
