TRIAFUTOBS consists of two rows of brick houses, interconnected by a yellow blob. The rough bric-a-brac version of the sculpture is almost opposite to the smooth, clean shape of the blobs. The rough version is representative of our physical world, whereas the clean version is characteristic of the digital, industrial world. The area of tension between both worlds is what interests Nick Ervinck, who is mainly fascinated by tension between the box and the blobs. He captures organics blob shapes in cages and places old angular architecture in symbiosis with new organic blob shapes. The results are balanced combinations, tensions and fertilizations between old and new, the physical and the virtual.
