Artificial Nature is a collaboration between the artist and design duo Josephine Andredottir and Emilie Bobek
We have in this project imitated landscape with artificial materials. We create an artificial scene of nature because art and design often find common ground here We ask ourselves, can we live in an artificial landscape without nature or can nature be found in the artificial materials?
The natural colours of rock, stone and moss are what first comes to the eye when looking at the scene from far away, but when moving in between the shapes you slowly feel the transformation from natural to artificial within the objects. Sculptural function as well as physical function is not an aim in itself but is instead replaced with a diverse landscape where the object floats together as a whole.
Here you are allowed to explore the materials and explore moss and stone in a new way. The many handcrafted shapes give a natural rough looking surface that allows the eyes to wander and find new places to investigate.
Stool, side table, wall pieces and sculptures are all handcrafted and are materials as mattress, jesmonite, epoxy and ash tree. Not only is the main product mattress turned into nature, but the works also contributes to recycling and makes focus on creating less waste.
