7. Process 2: Making
The process of making combines computational synthesis and manual sculptural processes. The generated skins with vertices, a built-in topography are used to make a series of totemic structures, evocative of Yoruba totems— imbued with meaning, messages, and sometimes specific stories.
Virtual forms have amassed the prose, linguistic data embodying the text, and in potentially combining a number of them together, offer a physical hyper-codex, each object, or symbol filled with embodied language and metaphysical ideas.
