The nature of water at Waterstorm by Arik Levy
Su interés por los cuerpos geométricos se ve claramente a lo largo de su obra escultórica. Las esculturas dentro de la obra Waterstorm de Arik Levy para COMPAC están profundamente inspiradas en la naturaleza del agua: es a la vez materia y, en última instancia, es un elemento importante en la producción de formas altamente complejas, es un medio de transformación y suspensión de partículas elementales. Las formas en las que se basan los jarrones, los lavabos y las bañeras de Arik Levy se generan finalmente en la transformación informática de sus pensamientos e ideas a través del tecno krafting utilizando el diseño de Obsidiana Volcano Cloud.
Without doubt Leonardo da Vinci’s treatises on the essence of water belong to the high points of early scientific observation. In his work, Arik Levy, clearly separates the functions of designer and artist. His urge to explore is reminiscent of that of the Renaissance artists. Levy draws large parts of his inspiration from both nature and from dealing with scientific and philosophical questions.
His interest in geometric bodies clearly emerges throughout his sculptural work. His sculptural works in the artwork Waterstorm by Arik Levy for COMPAC is deeply inspired by the nature of water: it is both matter, and is ultimately an important element in the production of highly complex forms, it is a medium for transformation and the suspension of elemental particles. The forms on which Levy’s vases, basins, and tubs are based are ultima- tely generated on the computer transformation of his thoughts and ideas via tecno krafting using the design Obsidiana Volcano Cloud.
The perfection of his computer designs capture the perfection of natural phenomena such as waves or shells. In his work, Levy reveals himself as someone who moves effortlessly and with skill between nature and technology. This agility pre- destines him for the poetic potential to recognize materials and to assign them their own form. For Levy nature is not only a source of inspiration, but almost a partner who accompanies his projects.
