Intersection of Asymmetrical Earrings Project 3020 outlines a scenario that could occur in a thousand years, imagining how e-waste, material waste from the immaterial digital age, will interfere with natural geological processes.
The patterns engraved with laser markers on silver foil represent a transposition of the natural textures of rocks in the digital world: the stratification of sedimentary rocks becomes a glitch noise, the porosity of volcanic rocks recalls the perforated boards used to insert information into the first computers, the lines of deformation typical of metamorphic rocks are transformed into a bitstream. The geometry of the plate is obtained by the intersection of two circumferences that symbolize the overlap between natural and artificial realm.
Each patternis associated with a type of synthetic mineral made by hand with resin and scraps of usb cables. The inner filament, formed by an alloy of silver and copper, was cut, oxidized, granulated, mimicking the morphology of the rocks. Thus transformed was included into a transparent epoxy resin.
Silver, resin, USB cable scraps To slow down the natural oxidation process of silver, the surface is treated with an hypoallergenic passivation process.
