Exploring themes of fetish, fossil, and impurity, Nick D’Alessandro engages in an expanded practice which deliberates on the lifetime of material. Using sculpture, print media and textile manipulation, he imagines the future point of human culture in the aftermath of the apocalypse. Nick’s work investigates garments and portable technologies as commodified entities which offer opportunity for connection and expression, yet are both entirely dependent on the user/wearer for meaning. He asks how we consider technology, what role fossilized objects play in creating a linear narrative, and what petrifying these habitual encounters can reveal about both the object and user.
