More-than-Human Fluid Speculations
These experiments take a more-than-human stance to explore the agency of materials and of AI to consider the speculative activity as an interconnected ecology of ideas, materials and technologies. Bridging the relationship between signifier and signified, these experiments explore both human and non-human interpretations.
Work in progress, using watercolour, home made inks, DALL-E, RunwayML and Stable Diffusion.

The agency of materials and their influence on the content of my drawings: dog grooming tool and gardening tool, drawn with ink made with leaves of the bush in my garden where my dog urinates.
