Serpents and Snails

Cover of publication Bruce Gernand, Serpents and Snails, Virtual Modelling and Material Process

“For the contemporary theorist Bruno Latour, the machine is a transparent entity, perpetually signalling the history of the human endeavour which ensured its existence. This surely underpins the direction of Gernand’s research: a wish to locate the apparent novelty and unreality of the computer in the traditions of processing material and in the conceptual approaches to that material that is experienced by the artist in his studio practice.”
