Conjugates Art by Manss Aval, Manss Aval Fine Art

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Conjugates

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Art

INSPIRATION:
The gods were forever doing geometry, according to the Greeks. Geometry has always occupied the human (and my) mind and dictated the environment we have created for ourselves. I grew up in the West, but am intimately connected with Eastern cultures and centuries of artistic expressions with calligraphy and intricate geometric patterns.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This project originates from photographs of real objects and explores the concept of how nominally inanimate geometric elements, can morph into moving, transforming, three-dimensional constructs. When ordinary spirals can assume dynamic shapes with a flexible and growing, multigonal boundary of abundant complexity and depth, the viewer’s eyes begin a journey to wherever it leads them. Complexity in deceiving simplicity.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
While at a distance it appears to be a simple geometric design, it becomes very complex as soon as one focuses on the intersection of the two main spirals. There the eye tries to identify the submerged geometric constructs and their subtle metamorphosis into one another. With every new attempt to identify the stepwise transformations a different detail emerges, prompting yet another discovery journey. The art becomes alive and intriguingly interactive, rather than being a simple two dimensional depiction of an object.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2015 and was completed in January, 2016. It was on exhibition at the Clio Art Fair and at ArtExpo (New York), Premio Arte Roma 2016 (Rome), ArT Venice 2016 (Venice), Art San Diego 2016 (San Diego) and Red Dot Miami 2016 (Miami). It was recognized by the Concorso Buenos Aires, in the Hot 40 CCBA 2016 Artworks contest (jury selected) and the Biancoscuro Art Contest 2016 (jury selected) and was featured on the cover of Biancoscuro Art Magazine (December/January issue).

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This project was inspired by the assertion that every object in the human environment, even if it is nominally inanimate, be it a building, tree or a geometric construct is endowed with intrinsic beauty. The research objectives were therefore to discover a new and unique format that would illustrate such beauty in an aesthetically pleasing, two-dimensional format. Since observers who usually pass such mundane objects without stopping for a second look, the presentation required virtual animation, i.e., a demonstration of how an inanimate geometric shape can become a dynamic construct to reveal its inner splendor. This had to be achieved by stepwise modulations of the original geometric construct that the observer could mentally trace to arrive at the desired conclusion. Most of the development time was consumed by exploring different transformation protocols and their subsequent conversion into acceptable presentations. Once the protocol was identified a suitable presentation medium had to be selected. The brushed aluminum backing for the archival prints was found to be most fitting, as the metal complements the abstract nature of the objects. Its textured surface reflects lights from different angles and adds life and dimensionality to the presentation.

CHALLENGE:
Among the countless modern artists who have focused on geometry are Frank Stella, Ilya Bolotowsky, Robert Hudson, Piet Mondrian, Kazimir Malevich, and Victor Vasarely. The majority of these prior artists employed paintings as their preferred medium. The greatest challenge was to find a new photography-based and distinct, aesthetically pleasing, two-dimensional format. The “virtual animation” alluded to above could not be presented in an explicit, stepwise fashion with accompanying “blue prints”. It needed to be kept minimalist and merely suggestive of the transformations and simultaneously meet critical objectives of appropriate composition, color and rendering.
