About

Phygital Studio by Bastiaan de Nennie (1990 The Netherlands)

Bastiaan de Nennie positions his practice at the intersection of the ever more intertwined worlds of the physical and the digital. He departs from a pre-digital reality: the world of things we have, mostly, experienced through their forms, colours and textures. Once selected, components are used as building blocks for new digital creations: a ‘phygital’ (physical + digital) presence materialized in the form of 3D-printed sculptures. This continuous traveling in and out of the physical and the digital world raises questions about the dominance of the material over the immaterial and our belief that the atomic structure is more real than its virtual counterpart, or that the physically made is more authentic than the digitally processed; or – in its barest form – the relationship between man and machine.
