2016 – levitating 3D-printed sculptures

 

A levitating iridescent model of the head of an oil drill quietly rotates, as if to drill the sky above it. Resembling an architectural model of the tower of Babel, the work embodies the infinite human desire to strive upwards while accumulating more wealth and power. The riches generated by oil exploration fuels the toxic aspirations of man to hover above others, in a seemingly unending spiralling motion.
