aerial forms


Wednesday, December 5, 2018

I firstly liked this book because of its simplicity
I was mostly attracted by the cover, a roll hanging on by a thread attached to a thin layer slightly curved. It could have been a jewel or an installation, all I could see was the beauty of the gesture.
It took me some time to find a book, I was going through the library and the bookshelves but I think I already saw this book once or twice, I was still, unable to see it.
I was despite me, looking for something specific, Something more colorful, more filled Something that could strike me instantly. I was really frustrated, I decided to leave the library and come again the next day when eventually I could be more open minded, then I found it.
The book in its shape and its composition gets me back to the finesse of the glass and its conception. Composition of thin intersected lines initiating a meditative relationship,
The grain of the image becomes part of the aerial forms.
The space remains, allow the eyes to contemplate the shapes.
The blank spaces on the pages exist as much, to me than those structures; that’s one of the main things that I like about this piece, including a space through the page.
It brings me back to the work of the Japanese architect junya ishigami and the plans he realized for Church of the valley, through his drawing you can find similar ideas;
Inscription in the landscape
Inclusion of the earth
Dialogue with nature
There is also something happening in terms of managing the materials between
Raw material, minimalism and delicacy of the glass
I see the transformation through the pages,
The light is perceptible,
The shapes merges together,
Intermingle,
To create architectural shapes
Superposition of thin layers on off white paper
