Expressive Residue is the attempt to curate and assemble the waste, traces, rests that accumulated during my artistic practice. The project playfully investigates notions of 'main work' and 'by-product' through an inverted perspective. At the example of 3D-printing, it collects, sorts, and displays what usually gets thrown away and investigates the expressivity of PLA residuals like brims, support structures, failed prints, trash.
Started in 2020, Expressive Residue is an ongoing collection of residual objects.
The three objects are, in order from left to right:
'failed square 03' PLA plastic, 11x11cm (2020)
'support 03' (2020) PLA plastic, 6x6cm
'failed square 01' PLA plastic, 11x11cm (2020)

Lotta Stöver works as a media artist, designer, and student in the Digital Media MA program at the University of the Arts in Bremen.
Her works are growing in the fields of new media, art, technologies, research, and simulations. Driven by a strong interest in the intersections and interdependencies of all phenomena and matters aligning, disobeying, transforming, and mutating along with (new) techno-*-logies, her works evolve in various media as installations, electronics, and publications.
