Alea Triplicata, otherwise known as the "hazardous cube", is a self replicating mechanical cell organism. It simultaneously shapes itself and seeks to connect with other neighboring cells. The piece in question portrays the Alea in its own process of self-replication through 3 stages, the mechanism, the construction and the completion.
Its shape is chaotic, geometric and random at large, similar to a tumour in some ways. Contrary to actual living cells, the Alea Triplicata forms its shell first and then its "nucleus" later. It does not separate itself in the conventional cell cycle. When most of the outer shell is formed, the shell, in turn, emits tendrils from the inside that are attracted to the center of cell.
An ARK Simulation is a custom instance of a digital Paradise for a select body of Automata. The ARK Simulation was created in an effort to conform reality to the Automata's new protocols of belief.
Without persistent maintenance, hardware begins to fail. Spawn Nodes, the modules necessary for an ARK Simulation's functionality, become defective. Most importantly, if too few nodes remain, and the Dentatsuna acting as the hub of the simulation fails, then the simulation will be terminated indefinitely. Whether the Automata know this, or have deliberately excluded it from their curiosities, is unknown.

Core is a reactor isolated in a completely sterile environment stored away from the elements, made evident by the polished coating on its rings. The goal of this venture was to create a device capable of harnessing and processing the energy of rare metals. Its casing is made up of a highly reflective material meant to contain the light rays emitted from the core when operational. When in motion, the rings spin at high-speeds in order to amplify the energy emitted from the core. That energy would then be transferred outside its own shell. It is the process of energy creation.
This work drew a lot of inspiration from some of the early sci-fi movies like "2001: A space odyssey". The goal was to re-imagine some of the technologies that we currently have and propose a new alternative on how they could look.
The natural progression of the Earth.
In a late 22nd century edition of "Architecting Worlds: A Simple Guide For Simple People", Stolmir et al.'s research in the proceduralization of organic synthesis was compiled into a short, 14 page synth-booklet. The manual was an attempt to raise interest in universal architecture in the general population, as well as to solidify the basic principles of organic pattern production.
It only sold half a million copies. Coincidentally, the information had not been fully experimented with, and as a result, a 17 year old teenager, and avid reader of science articles, inadvertedly created and destroyed 2 universes in a matter of microseconds, causing one of the most catastrophic events in human history.
The booklet was a hit thereafter.

Sometimes the most difficult part of creation is curating which part of ourselves we will present. It can be embarassing, awkward, vulnerable, and inconvenient, and despite that, we persist. Communication is worth it, it seems.
The looping GIF is a small fragment of a larger project. This is my way of showing a part of myself.
Silence of stones is a set of imagined environments set in a cyberpunk universe where man's consumption comes at a price. The idea was to represent silence as a luxury that only few can possess. As advertisements become noisier, and cities become more crowded, many would pay a dear price to rekindle with their natural environment.
The environments themselves are set in an underground cave network with simple motifs and textures, occasionally illuminated by natural sunlight. The architects figured that building the network underground would reduce the likelihood of outside noise interference. Each "room" in the network is different from the next, made to represent the different nuances of previously extinct biomes.
Project S.Y.N., led by a team of publicly funded scientists, Missouri USA. Completion of dedicated lab complete circa 2001. Goal: to create a cognitive symbiosis between man and machine. 2007, Government funding cut and the project forcefully terminated due to “inhumane research methods (sic)” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2008). Our research shows that scientists involved in the project were separated and displaced. Public interest slowly faded, lab has been abandoned since.
Our team visited the S.Y.N. facilities in April 2018 to the inspect architectural integrity following power and water shutdown in 2013. We have come across extensive documentation by one research lead dated post-project termination, pseudonym “A”, who seemed particularly obsessed over the incomplete results of the project and disappeared soon after its termination. We believe we have now located the body of “A”, hooked into S.Y.N. Authorities contacted, awaiting their arrival at the facility.
