Objects from nature are coated with plasma metal spray, a technology widely used in the aerospace industry, to create “high-tech” artefacts that were seemingly dug up from a parallel landscape or a distant future. Is this a case of nature being preserved and immortalised? Or has nature been so utterly dominated by manmade that it acquires the sheen of our machines? The fusion of two extremely different materials in a single object allow us to traverse a multiplicity of dualities — past and future, nature and artificial, found and designed — to consider new aesthetic possibilities.
