suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Shane BEARROW: “The Birth and Reverberation of an Object” is, in part, an analysis of Graham Harman’s object-oriented ontology, in which a natural object is stripped of its ontology through a series of craft iterations. The basic idea of this project was to conduct a series of drawing exercises going from analog to digital, in order to produce a unique shape. This process was inspired by Robin Evans’ essay “Translations from Drawing to Building.” All steps in the process were unique, though clearly traceable and geared toward the autonomy of an architectural object.
