To create Horror Vacui, Patricia has taken the module of the Roman amphora as a formal starting point and then reimagined this industrial module of Antiquity as the base material to generate these natural growth sculpture. The original Roman Amphorae have been digitally appropriated and modified, and contramoulds were CNC milled, to emulate the recursive growth patterns of underwater formations. With an academic background in architecture, I have integrated my knowledge of 3D modeling and fabrication, with more traditional craft methods, particularly those found in industrial production, such as mouldmaking and slipcasting.
During 2016, I researched set design and building methods. These allowed me to develop a modular system that, once adhered with the colourful resin, becomes one single piece.
EXHIBITION from the 4th October to 10th October 2016
