Onyx digital24

CONCEPT

ART/DESIGN

In ancient Persian and Indian tales Onyx symbolises strength, intuition and offers protection from evil. Other magic lores believed that Onyx was actually a terrifying demon who was imprisoned within the stone.

Models for surveillance architecture systems, imagined during a parallel mechanical age, using ornamental material design. Powerful energetic qualities of mineral have been corrupted and harnessed in order to observe and dominate. This project comments on extractivism and militarised technologies, visualising their aggressive role in today’s industrialised digital society.
