artist statement:  
Part human, mostly augmented... A future self, one that is smarter, cleaner, more resilient, more adaptive, all while still maintaining a sense of humanity. This evolved, hydrogen based, mechanically formed, human souled being now nurtures our planet rather than destroying it. 
 
Our old form furrows lands to infertility, it breeds animals for destruction, it strips land for throw away playthings, it commoditises water as sludge and filters oxygen into poisons. Our new form only embraces knowledge, art and recreation. This new hydrogen-based form only pollutes as water and oxygen. 
This new breed of beings is “Element 8” 

Materials & production details:  
PLA, TPU filament, Lycra, plastic & LED lighting, element 8 utilises a combination of machine 3D printed componentry and hand manipulated 3D printed technologies (3D printer pen), extruded plastic film, LED lighting effects as well as interactivity.

Bio: Zoran Zivanovic, director and owner of Zoran Architecture, is also an award-winning architect based on the Gold Coast, Queensland. Having over 30 years of experience behind him in the architectural field, he holds a strong bond for the design, detailing and construction processes Architecture entails, and also has a deep interest in all things technology. His greatest interest is in the blending of technology and architecture… more so the processes for design, visualisation and pre-construction rather than the implementation of technology within construction. His design thesis “The Evolution of Virtual Cities” was his first foray into this meshing, and has followed on with other interests such as Virtual Reality, 3D Visualisation, 3D Printing, Software Coding and Circuitry.
