Consume or Conserve

Studio Wieki Somers' work can be described as a subtle interplay of imaginative content and a sophisticated use of materials. Daily objects are turned into an aesthetic (sometimes emotional) experience.
For "Consume or Conserve" they created three still lives made of 3d-printed human ashes, that question the value of life and objects. They used the visual language that can be found in 16th and 17th century still life vanitas paintings, such as fruit, flowers and insects that symbolize the transcience of life.
