ARCHAE: light projection through cubic ethereal bodies, floating in the space. An illusion of suspended basaltic glass cottons. Volatility, evanescence, parallel dimension. The connection of cubic pieces creates geometric volumes that compose dreamy architectural structures.
Once the master piece is created, its surface is reproduced with epoxy resin and fiberglass in a totally handmade process. After the resin is catalysed, the master is carefully shattered in order to detach the shell – lampshade, so through the destruction of the mother piece, a new one is born.
ARCHAE are tectonic-looking structures that capture the light and throw it through volumes and textures generated by epoxy resin and fiberglass, scattering in all directions, creating an emotive illusion of gradient light, shadows and color, emphasizing the feeling of unreality and dreaminess.
REFLECTION, REFRACTION, ITERATION.
