The reflections of the sculpture in the plinth—and viewers in the surface of the sculpture—layer the form with flashes of human facial features. A similar corporeality crops up in the photographs. The subjects, which at first look like moon geodes or piles of ceramic studio leavings, at closer glance resemble generative, pulsating organisms from some past or future world. Carlsen creates them by manipulating and melding images of body parts, skin, bathroom floors, city streets, and clay that’s been thumbed into oddly shaped blobs.
