The inspiration for my Quantum Noise Containers came from two metal pieces I found 2014 and 2017 in Southern Germany and England. Through subsequent research on the internet I found out that this could be part of a Quantum Noise Container, a type of energy storage often used by secret societies, such as group 16.
I decided to learn about 3d modelling and started to imagine what the object would look like in pristine condition. As part of my creative process I envisioned a base piece which would act as a means for long term storage and energy transmission.
My idea was to invent an object which could be seen in a toy context and would, at the same time, reference group 16, a secret society I often do documentary work about. The individual pieces were modeled in Blender 3d and later printed on an UP 3d printer. Due to the filament printing process, I sanded down the resulting object to prepare it for mold making and casting. I used a silicone mold for the middle and bottom part. The top part, however, was not dierectly castable. At the moment, I’m working on a tree-way-split mold which would enable me to cast peices directly. For my artwork, the top part was printed in finer resolution on a polyjet printer. The same materiality can be achieved by sanding filament pieces.
The finished result was cold-cast in polyurethane and put in a mock-box with additional information on the object.
