Casting mold, Concrete casting
The initial idea for making these spheres was to create an object that would be situated in a utopian world based on the writings of Hans Frederik Jacobsen.
Here is a small excerpt of his writings on the project "Reality Warp" :
"Every reality has a thousand unfinished drafts. Change is constant, and we humans are experts at imagining that things can be different, all the while complaining that nothing changes. Never-ending, visions of change can come in the form of anything from a new chair, to an imaginary island. This is Utopia(s), the place we strive for but never seem to reach. And while we have always entertained these ideas, now that the world is realising it must act on an ecological imperative, constructing a vision of an alternative world is becoming more vital and more discussed, than ever. This time it’s for real.
Meanwhile, Elon Musk reaches for Mars while back on earth the internet is redefining truth and fiction. Reality Warp is a research project that puts the utopian to the test. We want to gather together, file and examine utopian ideas whether it’s from the hindus valley of 5000 BC or from your facebook feed this morning. What are the functions and possibilities of these utopian constructs and how do we apply them? Where do we look to for these visions today, and is there somewhere we are forgetting to look? At the end of it all, we run all our input through a particle accelerator and spit it out on the other side as a fiction film. A vision of our world radically different - our version of utopia."
