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.
