About the piece

Agate is a close scan of a stone. It’s an experiment about dimensions and what happens to the perception when you can view something in a way you normally can’t. Discovering a hidden layer with structures and patterns. It’s almost like moving into another dimension where the object seems like something else. Like when Alice in Wonderland eats the cake that makes her small and the world is suddenly entirely different, even though it’s really just the same.
