Chris Manzione (2011)

Entropic Growth 220

Entropic Growth 220 is a series of scanned growth models created from different organic tree parts. These parts have been connected into an amalgamated freestanding structure. The structure is able to be walked under and also offers hollow areas that allow the viewer to see thorough the surface. These hollow areas are meant to confuse and leave the viewer questioning what it is they are actually seeing.
