Using 3d technology and live shooting, Glucose reshapes our surrounding domestic environment. It depicts a place where physical distorsions happen. The camera becomes the microscope of a slow mental slideshow and catches precious moments of perception disorder. Inspired by the quantum theory where particles can be in two places at the same time in an overlapping state, this anxiogenic and humoristic short gives birth to new types of relationships between objects and their own physical particularities
In a world increasingly concerned with questions of energy production and raw material shortages, this project explores the potential of desert manufacturing, where energy and material occur in abundance.
In this experiment sunlight and sand are used as raw energy and material to produce glass objects using a 3D printing process, that combines natural energy and material with high-tech production technology.
Solar-sintering aims to raise questions about the future of manufacturing and trigger dreams of the full utilisation of the production potential of the worldâ€™s most efficient energy resource - the sun. Whilst not providing definitive answers this experiment aims to provide a point of departure for fresh thinking.
This project was developed at the Royal College of Art during my MA studies in Design Products on Platform 13.
