The repeating animations are constructed using 3D animation software and consist of a series of digital forms that explore the relationship between movement and structure. The digital structures use movement to create arrangements that deconstruct and re-assemble over time. The movements mirror the evolution and growth of material elements captured through time lapse photography. The aesthetic intricacy of each sculpture could also be said to possess a duplicity changing between symmetrical beauty and an uneasiness that is ascribed to the continually changing combination of forms that appears synthetic and uncontrollable.
