The Propeller Group (2017-2018)

Carved from jackfruit wood and found tracwood—a type of Vietnamese redwood that is protected in most of the country—this intricate sculpture combines traditional Vietnamese carving techniques with sci-fi subjects. This so-called “antique satellite” is one of a group of objects in which an imagined future is projected into objects from the past.
