‘Extreme present' is a term describing the addiction to and dependency on, the Internet. It was first used in The Age of Earthquakes, a book which discuss the 'earthquake' that was the Internet and the aftermath of its arrival.

This sculpture is symbolic of the ecstasy and hold a connected existence has on us. The figure is the idealistic female form, representing our eternal search, desire and self selection for perfect digital representation.

Born In Binary was created for and exhibited at the Sculptures Of Melbourne book launch, it was tasked with embodying contemporary sculpture. This work is a collaboration between Jake Stollery & the specialist 3D printing company, kad3D.

To emphasise this new media process and contrast against the classical stone-carved work in the publication, Born In Binary was 3D printed from a glow-in-the-dark material.
