echo (artificial), 2023
Polypropylene, polylactic acid, polyethylene, and nylon
echo (artificial) is a plastic representation of echo that explores the ephemera of its living counterpart. It is my digital mock-up brought to life, a practice of realm-bending. Bagged and sealed, the word narcotic shares its root with the flower (numbness). It is honoring death. It is an overdose, an addiction, an assembly, and a deconstruction. It is a preservation of an idea, of a manufacturing, of something that might be consumed.
