In the sculpture TANLUSTOR, this tension between tradition and innovation, between the linear and the organic, is clearly visible. There is an inherent monumentality in this artwork, that refers to Roman god statues, which are an important source of inspiration for the artist. The pedestal in turn is also a classic, linear design. However, the dynamics in the sculpture itself, that is created through computational design methods, transforms the design in a monumental, futuristic statue. This results in a sculpture that inspires and intrigues, but also exudes a classic elegance.
Because of the gradient, this endless movement in the sculpture is enhanced. The dynamics are inspired by a quill that was used as a writing instrument for centuries. At the same time, the innovative design methods refer to the digital revolution, that has an enormous impact on our daily life. Past and present are intertwined, referring to the tradition of writing and how it is evolved into writing down our words and thoughts digitally today.
