SOLID SPIN LAMPS
The Solid Spin Lamp collection grew out of series of experiments made with everyday objects that can be found in everyone’s household. These elements were shoes, reading glasses, books, mugs, jugs, forks, remotes, etc. I was fascinated with the shapes that could be created by simply spinning these objects. I took pictures and video with a slow shutter in order to capture these new shapes. These experiments resulted in fragile, ghost like shapes at different stages that were built up of layers.
I wasn’t quite satisfied with the results and started to wonder how could I make the outlines more clear and the shapes more solid.
I was interested in strength, not fragility and therefore I decided to see what happened if I moved an object around its’ own axis and then an axis of my own choice. I tested objects by themselves and also in groups where they were stacked on top of each other. This resulted in interesting solid revolutionary shapes with great outer detail. The possibilities are endless.
