Vanessa Fernandez's work is exploring new ways of working with CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines. She is challenge the limits of what is possible to do within the rigid operative standard, by adding a component of random movement to achieve unexpected results. Deviating from the clean, precise, linear, controlled work that is usually created with CNC and inciting some unexpected creativity. Vanessa is a student at the University of Gothenburg.
"The concept behind this work is a positioning against systems of power and absolute control, which in a variety of forms numb societies, diminish agency and freedom of expression by hindering alternative ways of action. The ultimate objective of the project is to raise awareness about these conditions - hoping to invoke a sense of empowerment in the audience and boosting their courage to take action and change realities for the better.
