Descent - notes



All sculptures seen below are made of the remains of their predecessor.
Because each sculpture had to be destroyed in order to create the next one
only the last shape still physically exists.

 4D/12D
   
 12D



Notes 1 camera movement, vertical time, temporal thickness, feedback scaling. 
 Notes 2: creation/destruction, observer, dimensions, time, repetition.

STAGES

1. The process starts by dropping and breaking 
a cylinder shaped ceramic cup. ( see notes1&2)

2.Capturing the movement and layering the frames.

3.Dissolving the fragments in water, 
recuperating everything back to malleable clay.


4.Flattening and creating thin smooth layers.

5.Projecting the frames of the movement on the new clay layers.
Cutting out the 2 dimensional fragments and tracing the intersections in every frame.


6.Drying the newly cut fragments.

7.Positioning the first frame / layer.

8.Gluing the layers together according to the intersection marks.

9.Rotating the disc and panning the camera step by step for each layer.

10.Dropping the shape / sculpture while recording the movement.

 Repeating the steps until reaching the 12th dimension.
