In this series, parts of a tree are coated with plasma metal spray, a technology widely used in the aerospace industry. Metallic Transformation combines found objects from the natural world with high-tech materials and processes to evoke an archaeology beyond the accepted laws of time. The objects are given a silver sheen that both preserves and transforms them, seeking a fluid path between the perceived opposites of technology and nature.

Metallic Transformation (Twig), 2016,
