Anomalies (Of Random Intelligent Design)



Anomalies (Of Random Intelligent Design) is a series of assemblage sculptures created out of found pieces of bone, limbs, exoskeleton and shell collected on a beach in Skagastrond, Iceland, one day during an artist Residency at NES studios. The work explores a humorous approach to thinking about our hand in “intelligent” evolution, the possibilities and failings of genetic manipulation and our way of modifying nature to become anthropomorphic or human centric. Like a puzzle, the same building blocks create a multitude of possible designs.  Nature’s randomness expressed in bone debris found on a single beach, a metaphor for the external pressures of the environment. The pieces are recombined and balanced with different outcomes, similar to how our genes mix and match during the process of evolution.
