CORES is an ongoing collaborative project initiated in 2019 by artists Nicolas Sassoon (Vancouver, BC) and
Rick Silva (Eugene, OR) that focuses on 3D renderings of altered geological specimens. Sassoon and Silva
share an ongoing theme in their individual practices; the depiction of wilderness and natural forms through
computer imaging. Created by merging their respective fields of visual research, CORES features different
types of high-resolution 3D scanned rocks inhabited by unnatural substances and enigmatic structures. The
project draws from various sources ranging from climate studies to science-fiction to create 3D generated
video works reflecting on contamination, mutation and future ecologies.
Additionally, the project is complemented with an essay written by researchers and writers Elise Hunchuck
& Jussi Parikka, titled “Eight fragments on Eight Stones” – published in the publication accompanying the
exhibition SUBTERRANEA.
