“The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of a planter – for the future. His duty is to lay foundation of those who are to come and point the way.”
– NIKOLA TESLA –
[in “Wired” 142 years after his death]

 


 

A generative design print series based on the ideas of the state of surpassing or going beyond limits; the being of a measure beyond sufficiency, necessity, or duty; that which exceeds what is usual or proper and finally being subject of a process of being gradually decomposed like all matter.
The objects balance on a fine line between sculptural architectural objects and fictional forms, between meaning and use and between the beautiful and the horrific. The illustrations were designed using processing and maya.
