Falling into its Thingness is a collaborative presentation between two artists, Aki Hassan and Rifqi Amirul Rosli. In light of the sharp shift into digitalisation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, studio-based practices needing accessibility to materials and studios have taken a hit. The digital space fails to capture sculptural works in its fullest form. Falling into its Thingness responds to this current climate by re-imagining sculptural possibilities virtually.


In this first iteration, the project explores the notion of gravity within the digital space. As an element integral to a physical experience, this collection of renderings considers (im)possibilities to expressing sculptural sensitivities. Treating the microsite as a ground for experimental installation, the works are scattered across the digital site and placed in careful relation to each other. Embracing digital mistranslations of sculptural-making, Aki and Rifqi record their processes through photographs, GIFS, 3D scans and textual work.
