4.4- 2016

 

The 4.4 installation is focused on the theme of consumption, pointing to new directions in our contemporary patterns of consumption. The duality between organic and industrial elements creates an environment of quiet chaos. The physical and spiritual presence in the installation inspires us to think about our priorities. This prompts observers to reconsider their decisions with a view to achieving sustainability. 

 

"Flying drone" by Joachim Froment

 

At his school, the Royal College of Art in London, Joachim used a laser to cut plywood. Afterwards he glued the pieces together forging an alveolus-like pattern that varies according to specific zone resistance requirement (more compact and solid in the center and on the edges) and airflow requirements (propellers zone). Its flat shape allows for an easier glide, which is an aeronautic quality, inspired by the way birds’ fly.
