In an attempt of sculpting utopia, Archipelago is a mixed media installation created to explore the materiality of Aluminate. In a blitz of lights the surface changes from white to a range of colors. It creates a surface of glow which leaves a message that is fading out. The surface recharges in intervals and a new archipelago appears in reincarnation.
