11"x8.5"x3" - Laser sintered nylon 3D print
"Nothing Contained" is a wall mounted void containment device. Nothingness is divided and separated from itself in complex ways by the many containment compartments, thus rendering it safe for observation and contemplation.
The initial concept was to make a sculpture that hangs on the wall like a painting. It was also inspired by control devices such as thermostats and intercoms.
The piece deals with the power and the illusion of boundaries and control. It offers an antidote for the irrational fear of annihilation and void. It contains everything necessary for enlightenment.
The sculpture was created using procedurally defined implicit surfaces, derivative structures and turbulent noise in combination with direct sculpting and manual manipulation.
