Spazio Rossana Orlandi
Helvetica Light is an easy to read font, with tall and narrow letters, that works
A swell, a push, a vortex whipped.
An unexpected heft, a dash of delicate details.
A fleeting moment paused, a landscape aged.
Force is a set of centerpieces.
created by air and cast in bronze.
it is captive ephemerality and
long standing feature.
Time, caught in bronze, Force immortalizes moments between. Poised amid then, now + next, these bronze centerpieces are made from chaos constrained. Artificial wind was set to set earth: gypsum, concrete, cement. Familiar + foreign, terrestrial + cosmic, the reactions imprint history - each interaction, movement + moment.
Part of the SAIC 2015 WhatNot collection, Force was exhibited during Milan Design week, at Spazio Rossana Orlandi, among works created over the course of a year, centered on the idea of holes, lead by designers Helen Maria Nugent + Jim TerMeer. The pieces were featured on L'ArcoBaleno.
