FRAGILE FUTURE IS REPRESENTED BY CARPENTERS WORKSHOP GALLERY
With Fragile Future III, Studio Drift fuses nature and technology into a multidisciplinary light sculpture. The project can be seen as a critical yet utopian vision on the future of our planet, where two seemingly opposite evolutions have made a pact to survive.
The sculpture consists of three-dimensional bronze electrical circuits connected to light emitting dandelions. It contains real dandelion seeds, that were picked by hand, and glued seed by seed to LED lights. This labour-intensive process is a clear statement against mass production and throwaway culture. Are the rapid technological developments of our age really more advanced than the evolution of nature, of which the dandelion is such a transient and symbolic example? And how could those two evolve together?
Studio Drift proposes a vision of that future in her own signature aesthetics; a distinct mix between high-tech and poetic imagery in which light functions as a symbolic and emotional ingredient. Fragile Future III is about conveying emotion and at the same time refers to the fact that light lies at the basis of all life.
