Fractures is a continuation of Æsa’s study of human boundaries, and the individuals space in the context of human relationships. By using a digital scan of her body, which she then splits and divides into sections before reassembling them into an exploding figure, barely held together with fragile glass rods, she comments on the fragile state of the individual, both on a personal level, and on the level of the individual in modern society, underlying the fragile state we as a species find us in. The piece evokes architectural structures on the verge of collapse, tectonic plates, skeletal structures as well as the contrasting surfaces of digitised human skin.
