‘Synthetic Species’ is a series made during my 2012 Beijing Residency at Shen Shaomin Studios. The objects Synthetic Species have an apocalyptic tenor. The primary material is plastic, shown here in photographs of new forms of life, floating in a primordial evolutionary soup. Because of its inorganic indestructability, I imagine these materials as an unnatural successor to humankind once it has become extinct.
