Bundles made for Electric Artefacts
Plasticity Bundles, 2020
Rogers has been researching theories around plasticity, particularly those explored by Catherine Malabou. Malabou writes about ecological plasticity, which is centered on how an organism relates to its surroundings. Sophie uses digital software including Cinema 4D to create simulations of imagined places and scenes often inspired by world-building practices found in sci-fi. Her work for Electric Artefacts, The Plasticity Bundles combines CGI imagery of imagined hybrid creatures with research into the “everlasting synthetic intrusion on the natural marine ecology” as described by Susan Freinkel in her book Plastic: A Toxic Love Story.
