Damaris Athene

Gradient_Shift



2024
Kiln-formed glass and stainless steel

Approx. H 80cm x W 120cm x D 13cm 

Gradient_Shift continues Damaris Athene’s exploration of the posthuman and how digital technology alters our perception of bodily materiality using new techniques developed at the RCA. Kiln-formed glass resembles crystallised glistening flesh or rotting vegetive matter, frothing and multiplying while vibrating between beauty and disgust. Laser-cut stainless steel mirrors the shape of the glass and creates a fake shadow on the wall, sharply contrasting the organic nature of the glass and doubling the fake over the real, making the whole installation look like a digital artefact. The glass shifts on the metal, hinting at a potential for movement.
