    The Unbearable Lightness and Heaviness of Being



    In the sculptural installation, “The Unbearable Lightness and Heaviness of Being”, rapid prototyping machines were used to print the 3D forms; these sculptures are installed in unique formations with other natural materials. This work contains conceptual and formal contradictions. Conceptually, it embodies an existence of opposing forces – depicting organisms in flight, but rooted. Structurally, the natural and synthetic are fused; fragile, intricate forms made of plastic and advanced digital technologies are juxtaposed with organic matter
