grey goo

grey goo is the name given to the hypothesized scenario which envisions the world being taken over by self-replicating nano-technology. giacomo costa is a digital artist who imagines the world post-infiltration. the forms that begin to arise in the decimated landscape seem to grow organically, yet mimic the vertical growth patterns of urban density. calling to mind the singularity, where the rate of technology expands so rapidly that a super-intelligent 'being' is created, these images imagine a new phase in evolution; one created by humans, but not controlled by them.
