Autem is a material and visual experimentation with marble and mirrors. The project is an investigation into the relationship between volume, mass, and perception. Can we unbundle a material from its defining characteristics, without alienating its perception and meaning? The first piece of the investigation explores these relations, confronting the manufacturing limits of both marble and glass to create an alteration of their characteristics. Can marble be light? Can glass be not fragile?
