Gliederfüßer

 Gliederfüßer is a unique series of objects combining technological possibilities with the magic of nature. Their material is motion and the moment of its capture. They symbolize the pace of time and acceleration (development of human, science, and technology).

Alignment and form

Alignment constitutes an important element of design today. The dynamic form of Gliederfüßer sculptures results from the conditions and the nature of space – it is space that defines them. Carefully selected materials and an appropriate form allow creating a whole series of individual objects.

Inspired by motion

Motion is a key concept underlying Gliederfüßer. The form is inspired by nature and the way arthropods move. The analysis of their movement has made it possible to recapture it in a virtual model.

Motion.

Acceleration.

Moment of capture.

Gliederfüßer sculptures symbolize the development curve of the human civilization, which has increased its pace in the recent year (is rising). It is driven by inventions, innovations, and pioneers who push the world forward with their actions. In order to keep up with it,

one needs to adapt and adjust to the changing environment. It is the motion (pace) that constitutes a material for the infinite number of forms of Gliederfüßer sculptures, while the moment of capture becomes a design-related decision freezing the object in a dynamic pose.

Design

The dynamic forms have been obtained through the process of parametric design. This field is having increasingly higher influence on design, architecture, engineering, and urban planning. It relies on programs creating solid figures based on algorithms and set parameters. It allows adapting to every environment and generating an infinite number of forms. Art is gradually moving to computer screens. The Gliederfüßer sculptures

constitute an embodiment of this trend,representing a transient state between the two-dimensional world and the three-dimensional world. The technological development makes it possible for us to transfer the movements of a human body to the virtual space. It is an evolution of design tools, a fusion of art and science in its purest form. The boundary between the real and the virtual has never been so blurred.
