Master-Thesis: "Extensions"

Supervision: Prof. Theo Smeets, Prof. Eva-Maria Kollischan

"Technology is an essential aspect of human nature. From the earliest stone tools to fire, from the wheel to the motor, from electricity to the telephone, from the personal computer to the internet. It now allows us to extend not only human physical and mental faculties, but also it extends the material world, interactions, and physical places.

Inevitably, technology influences and reshapes our relationship with the world.

My source of inspiration is the hybrid reality we live in, where our daily experiences are partly digital and partly analogue.

All my works are the result of a combination of the ancient art of stone carving and the use of 3D modelling software. Through a dynamic process, I brought my works to life in the digital world and materialized them in the tangible world, establishing a dialogue between the two realities."
