Unearth SP00 ~ 04
Through our backend screens staring back at users’ undivided attention, the controlled, the copied, and the pasted are continuously being evaluated, summoning us to extract and share what strikes most. Images, doomed to take on a life of their own, nourish our constantlyrefreshed, unearthed feeds.

Captured, recorded, and compressed into a new format, a series of five web-earthed species came into existence {unearthed-SP.001-005}. Closely resembling the familiar features of wildflowers, the species affinis {SP.} spreads its specimen, its potential .jpg-offsprings, across the span of our feeds, dispersing itself across the web and searching for new modes of survival and surfacing in a digital-earthed age. As much as we ourselves are the image-consuming parameters fed by its multibody, the web-earthed species is nurtured and sustained just as much by us. Reproduced soft selections of 3D-printed stems and flowers are presented in symbiosis with flameworked glass, meant to be activated and snapped by the eye of the beholder, but never contained to a single visual representation. Manipulated digital replicas of the physically undefined web-earthed species live on through the field of visibility, the system of our time-based media through which we digitally soft-pick andplant images.
