The Cryptomorph-EX3 is a fused aggregate of soft, cellular componentry that is meshed together to form a dense dermal object. Ridged by multiple interacting planes of symmetry, its cellular surfaces consist of porous involutions that draw the Cryptomorph’s environment into a hidden interior micro-world of chambers, channels, and structural attenuations. Its surface is a composite of formed geometries, forming rudiments, colorings, matrices, and porosities. It is, perhaps, an implant in search of a substrate. Or vice-versa. The Cryptomorph-EX3 is but one incarnation of a mutually constituting relationship between micro-scale componentry and meso-scale forming. Borne of and extracted from a serialized world of possible Cryptomorphs, the EX3 is alone in the media vacuum to form its own autonomous micro-world of self-referential symmetries, componentries, infoldings, and pigmentations - an individual without a species, an organ without a body, an object without a context.
