David Åberg is a digital sculptor and 3D animator. His pieces are created virtually and without limitations of gravity and materiality. From the imagination and the limitless starting point, his artistic handicraft is filtered through a digital pen. Åberg’s tactile process is in this way transferred into algorithms, in the dialogue between individual creativity and descriptive mathematics, that formulates into digital spatialities and sculptures.
Åberg says "There is something exciting in this technology and its relation to drawing. By drawing on a two-dimensional surface of a screen I manipulate the geometry, which presents itself as a three-dimensional object. Furthermore, I see the media as a simulated version of the metaphysical which raises questions about multidimensional realities and psychedelic experiences. David Åberg is inspired by imaginary and esoteric art as well as sci-fi aesthetics and mythologies.
With roots in art history, one might trace a clear relationship to natural forms in his practice, where the more strict language of technology is present. David Åberg's sculptures become detailed and hyper-realistic and simultaneously cause a transformation that turns away from our physical reality. In his universe – in the electronic, non-tactile version of reality – he builds up a fictitious gallery of personalities and examines issues relating to fantasy identities and transhumanism.
