Simplification is a necessary part of our creative practice. It allows us to cut down what isn’t needed and focus on the core ideas of the project. Remnants is based on this process. Throughout the development of Remnants, we have found that simplifying our approach to creating ideas has allowed us to progress the formation of our project effectively.
While this project was based heavily on the process, the outcome is also an artistic representation of simplification. The dome structure built from bamboo and covered with synthetic cotton wool houses a network of computers that send signals to one another when the cord is pulled. This is visualised through the lengths of LED lights connecting the nodes to one another.
This is what we imagine a brain might look like if it were simplified. We can clearly see the communication visualised by the different neurons sending pulses through the synapses.
