Pleasure Pain
Pleasure Pain is an emerging member of the Human Consciousness Series.

This body of work is a mixture of symbolic juxtapositions and narratives.

I began with digital forms that were either 3D modeled or derived from scans. Those forms were then 3D printed in PLA (PLA or polylactic acid is a corn starch polyester that is food-safe. It is a commonly used filament used in 3D printing). The prints were either refined (using various processes) or left raw. I used some of the prints to make molds and made castings in a variety of materials.

The modeled forms are abstractions and meant to imply biological organisms. These characters are frozen in some state of action and/or response. They contribute to depicting narratives that are specific.

The works that include digital scan/print juxtapositions are composed of objects that are meant to speak to the evolution of humankind.
