Gerard Carson

"Emergence" is a 3D animated work that manifests many of the ideas surrounding Gerard Carson's "Petronics" project.
Petronics is a blending of material temporalities, where the deep-time of lithic and organic processes mix with accelerated technological programming, whereby matter conjugates in coalitions of precarity and mutability. Objects are estranged from their exploitation as tools and resources; they are rendered into queer remixes that possess alien agencies which are perpetually turbulent. By materials that are neither settled nor fully known (concrete, silicone, bio-plastics, 3D printing), Petronics seeks to produce zones of enmeshment, wherein indeterminate vectors continually mutate and shift, producing emergent subjectivities oriented within a speculative expanse.
