The research features 3D powder print objects illustrating digital artifacts alongside composite models portraying Screen Burn, a screen defect resulting from cumulative non-uniform screen use.
"My connection to the digital realm is profound. It feels like an unbreakable bond. This dependence is evident in the marks and discoloration etched onto my screen – remnants and memories of web browsers and applications long closed.

Landscapes and horizons, from the Sierra Nevada to Yosemite Valley, are eerily framed as window views. Does the value of digitally archived and consumed content change when we give it physical form? Does our relationship with it undergo transformation?
