Fascinated by the idea of digitally expanding our natural habitat we have been developing materials, textures and surfaces for an imagined layer of reality. In FLOWERS we directed our focus on flowers and blossoms. A familiar element of our everyday life is placed in new contexts and provided with our artificial material vocabulary.
Reality and Digitality blur into one another by blending digital with analog aspects. New perspectives on familiar objects arise, which evoke new feelings that cause a distortion / change in our previous perception. Hyper-realistic materials make us question our reality.
