Polymorphismo

A project by Nayeli Vega and Thomas O’Reilly

An idea becomes an image, becomes an object, becomes an image. Are we able to control the interpretation of the images we put online? How does the context of an object affect its meaning?
Polymorphismo in an embodiment of research undertaken into the aesthetics of the internet, it materialized as fluid and organic forms digitally manufactured with a 3D printer. With post processing, the printed forms were transformed representations on non-gender alien lifeforms. By presenting that which is fake and online in the real and offline, we proposed a question to the viewer about the nature of the images that we see today.
