Technology is expanding at unprecedented speeds. Social media is erupting with divisiveness and disinformation. Climate change and globalization are critical issues confronting our world. The Hyperflux series explores these issues through a conceptual lens.

Informed by colour fields, Borden sculpts acrylic skins to become objects within a space, blurring the lines of where painting stops and sculpture begins. Through a formal relationship dealing with colour and form, the viewer is invited to experience a suspended moment in time. Materiality is a key component by re-framing meaning through aesthetic juxtapositions.

With the investigation into the elasticity of boundaries in terms of expansion and contraction, layered relationships of tension and influx are uncovered. It is through this complexity where one can find parallels to understanding the self and the world around us to better understand the space we occupy.
