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, imagination, 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 properties. The result is geological objects made through a procedural fusion where bound- aries are put in question. The work also accentuates the force and aliveness of inanimate beings. Only through interaction and transformation life comes to existence.
