Vein v.0.1: Orbital Transition indicates a progressing body that is in a state of confusion and transition, as it traverses modes of living and non-living status. This work is a continuation of the artist’s interrogation into Posthuman discourse, questioning the unknown tension between the planetary scale of phenomena and a deep underground secret that has grown amidst technological advancement and the predicament of the human position. The work expresses resistance and dependence within the oscillating energy and spiritual capacity of spatial generation. The artist creates an abstract motion and complex energy forces of its corporeal body. The entanglement of the sculpture has been developed through the processes and conditions of suspension and tension which relying upon the natural force of gravity and material capacity. The work is situated in the purity of its natural materiality but also within an environment of synthetic incubator.

The precarious nature of real and virtual creatures is in a constant interrupted and confused mode. This is explored in this work which is drifting and fluid, conveying the precarious and mingled state of our own, and the surrounding, condition.
