Slipstream 001 by Nancy Baker Cahill

Annotations

Nancy Baker Cahill’s mutant artwork “Stipstream 001” takes inspiration from the literary genre known as slipstream fiction, which deals with “the familiar strange or the strange familiar.” The digital sculpture is based on an IRL sculpture made of torn graphite drawings that were recombined and translated into a 3D object that resembles a simulated botanical form. This process of making and destroying-or of altering the translation of the representational state of the artwork-is a multi-layered, ongoing part of Baker Cahill’s artistic practice. The work contains additional layers of reality that are only revealed once the work is collected.
