When two waves meet traveling (2016)

collaboration with Anna Eyler

Eyler and Lapointe’s collaborative work When two waves meet travelling brings to light notions of digital replication and virtual space while bridging the gap between physical and digital materiality. A pillar of pale blue resin rocks emerges from a box on the floor, extending upwards more than 8 feet in the air. At once evocative of a futuristic vertebrae and a lagging cursor, When two waves meet travelling plays on the fallibility of digital and physical construction alike while offering an imperfect hybrid of both worlds. At the same time, what remains of this hybrid is only its skeletal architecture, emerging from a humble cardboard structure: a discarded relic from a future that has not yet come to pass.
