Cognitive Nature - the force of things

Cognition is the mental process of knowing about oneself and the world. This includes aspects such as perception, intuition, imag- ination, reasoning and memory. it does not follow a standard interpretation because it is subjective, each one has a personal form of analysis.The materials in this project date back to the early days of Earth's history: Clay, raw stone, glass (silica). By combing the stones with clay/ glass and exposing them to alternated forces such as high tempera- ture and pressure it is possible to push the matter to its limits and explore its proper- ties. The result is geological objects made through a procedural fusion where bound- aries are put in question. The work also ac- centuates the force and aliveness of inani- mate beings. Only through interaction and transformation life comes to existence.
