STATEMENT

In my work I try to connect traditional media with methods of digital sculpting which offer not only new ways of fabricating an object, but also open a very new possibility of thinking about a sculpture in a conceptual way, because the object is in the state of digital presence. This is a moment where other data can be brod in and inform the three-dimensional form. Those objects I see as containers of converted information freed from the digital medium once executed as a physical object. But digital sculpture can be also represented as virtual which adds to the complexity of potentials of digital sculpture. I can choose the representation thus also juxtaposing the various nature of visuality.
