Organic Plasticity features works by Selin Oguz Balci and Natalie Cheung, highlighting the organic vs. artificial manipulation of forms. The work of Selin Oguz Balci is produced through the stimulation of organisms whose byproducts result in colorful biological close ups reminiscent of scientific texts. The work of Natalie Cheung utilizes the chemical to capture the natural reactions to light and air, leaving behind crystalized formations that evoke forgotten landscapes. Although their methods and materials are very opposing there is a familiarity ever present in the patterns they’ve created.
