TURKEYPOINT TURKEYPOINT TURKEYPOINT

Time Containment I, consists of different sized tubes made from prints on photographic paper and several 3D PLA prints in combination with natural materials such as halves of coconuts. For the tube-like sculptures, analog middle format camera negatives were exposed to radioactive samples from the nuclear test site of the Bikini Atoll. The radioactivity from the coral samples leaves white traces on the analog photographic material. The negatives were scanned and printed on b&w photo paper. The formal aspect of the sculpture relates them to columns, storage vessels, star-maps, architectural plans - creating an immersive archive-like intervention in the the exhibition space addressing discourses such as the nuclear legacy, the responsible handling of the planet and other species in the age of the Anthropocene.
