Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.

"Ariel's Song," Scene ii Act I “The Tempest,” by William Shakespeare

 

In the display of the iPad you see you are surrounded by a colorful coral reef - made of (virtual) plastic waste. The longer you view them, the more they bleach ... The small, pure white ceramic sculpture is a memento mori, a coral that bleached and in dying fell out of the virtual ocean into our "real" world.

Nothing of him that doth fade ... 3D printed ceramic sculpture and custom AR app were auctioned on 23 November 2019 at the PIN. Friends of the Pinakothek fundraising gala for the Pinakothek der Moderne and Museum Brandhorst in Munich.
