‘Physicals’ are a series of reliefs carved with a 3-axis CNC router into polyurethane model board. The artworks are based on CAM 3D models which are constructed on a computer. All the objects appearing in the works are taken from popular internet libraries. This common semiotic material is then subjected to processes including extrusion and multiplication, before being composed and carved.

The resulting artworks mimic the process of production used to create many of the things that surround us, from buildings to luxury goods. Breaking down these processes to produce alien forms, the series explores ideas of incursion, authenticity and presence in an environment where physical objects are often a secondary product of their digital design.
