Collection – Digital Drift

A portal into the exhilarating internal realms of the contemporary digital native. Offering a dynamic dimensional dreamtime for cybernetic serendipity and crystallizing the essence of contemporary soul space. A sublime rendering of weird science into a virtual reef; Mapping the mysteries of neo-future mermaidian minds and augmented environments of the urban spiritual cyborg. Merging a future-primitive reverence of aquatic majesty with a sublime digital future, using alternate material technologies to ignite an ecstatic vision, Integrating strong visceral motifs from oceanic reefs and lofi 80's augmented reality to instill an intuitive majesty and unite a chorus of colour. All prints come from original watercolor paintings and digital remixes, accompanied by sculptured pieces made through hijacked materials and machinery such as laser cutting, 3d scan body mapping and printing, vacuum forming, cnc milling, fibre optics, electronics, silicone casting etc

DIGITAL DRIFT is about remixing material systems and cultivating vital colour communications, a contemporary pastiche of nature, future potential and technology.
Re-contextualising lo-fi material renderings as an intuitive expression, With reverence to a legacy of techno-instinctual displays, the DIGITAL DRIFT collection speaks as a colourful beacon radiating a natural evolution of NXK’s techno optimistic future vision.
