Simek uses an expanded practice in digital art, sculpture and installation to investigate the genesis of material beings, exploring what constitutes a lifespan and the conditions that sustain ecologies of matter. This work engages with the concept of ‘thing-power’, the idea that all matter is able to affect and be affected. Here materials and technology are approached as collaborators, companions and kin to the artist during the process of creation.
