The way the earth remembers our bodies (Material Presence), CNC milled walnut, 2018

‘The way the earth remembers our bodies’ takes the form of a kitchen table made from walnut. The tabletop has been CNC milled from a 3D scan to reveal from within the wood surface a rucked tablecloth marked by dishes that once sat upon it, a knife, a spoon, and the remnants of food that has been eaten. The defining edges of the items on the table’s surface are blurred; the boundary between knife and tabletop unclear.”
