Auroranite

Assembled cast glass

140 mm x 185 mm x 185 mm

Auroranite examines the origins of abiogenetic life and uses elemental organic geometry as a basis for inspiration. The much challenged theory of abiogenesis examines how the natural process of life arises from non-living matter, such as simple organic compounds. It seems as if the asymmetry (chirality) of chemical structures signifies the triggers of growth sequences that are elemental in the understanding of what trips this potential ‘life’ switch. Mindful of these chemical processes, my work has a strong serendipitous affinity with marine invertebrates, realised through assembling rhythmic sequences of cast and carved glass elements.
