A series of one-off displays sculpted from anthracite and cast in Aluminum.
This collection explores a desire to imitate nature by presenting a series of small dual displays.
Sculpted from anthracite and subsequently cast in aluminum, each twin “shelf” is unique and can be used to display any precious or peculiar object. Unlike the widely applied marbles, travertine and onyxes, this material has a specific “aura” which is comparable to the Chinese scholar’s rock (gongshi). It is a stone shaped by natural forces, which is appreciated for its particular appearance.
The process of casting is a means of reproduction which has the power to turn chaotic realities into seemingly coherent narratives. Whilst the original coal rock is unique and permanent, the casted aluminum rock is transitory and reproducible. By placing them next to each other Nothing New Under the Sun stimulates a series of thoughts.
