DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Gold and Spiderweb

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Art

INSPIRATION:
Nature is unsurpassed in its uniqueness and allure. The best artworks and architectural wonders are made by observing and honoring nature's engineering thoughtfulness, trying to at least approach its perfection or to save its artistry over the centuries. In this project, that was the main target and inspiration.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The task was to create an art object which does not copy and does not resemble anything made by mankind before. Spider web with its natural beauty and aesthetics always has attracted attention. But its beauty does not last for long. The goal was to save this glory forever and to show it in the most unusual way. To achieve this goal, there were many difficulties (how to transport it, store it and later cover with 24k gold).

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This is an artwork which changes and feels alive by different lightnings used, lightning changes the visual perception.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2016 in Riga, finished in January 2017. Artwork was exhibited in artwork gallery MUSEUM LV in Riga in February 2018.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
To remove, transport and to preserve the spider web until later processing, specialized adaptations and transport boxes were used. To preserve the spider web, multistage conservation technology was used. Only pure 24 carat gold is applied to cover the spider web. Applying technology does not make damage and it is handled in low temperatures. Carcass is made, to whom is mounted flocked cardboard bearing frame with composition and anti-reflective museum glass. Finally all elements are united to be seen as a whole. Gift box has a two way appliance – first is decorative, it gives completeness to the idea. Second is functional – box allows to preserve and transport the artwork when necessary. It is equipped with six specialized damping inserts from shock absorbing foam. This helps to transport the artwork with care. On the front side nameplate with motto is mounted.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
People are amazed by spider webs since childhood – perfection in lines and fineness in displacement, feeling of wonder right before your eyes. Unfortunately, this beauty does not last for long. Main idea of project Gold and Spiderweb was to create an art object, using nature's unique beauty and graphic arts of spider web, which could last for centuries. To achieve this goal, Andrejs Nadezdinskis decided to use 24 carat gold and to display spider webs in most respectable way. As far known, no one had carried out such an idea before him. There were many difficulties in his task. First of all, it was necessary to find a way how to remove the spider web without ruining it and to save its unique natural composition. Secondly, Mr. Nadezdinskis had to transport and preserve it until later processing. Thirdly, spider web had to be covered with pure 24k gold and the artwork had to be finished properly. Fourthly, project's author wanted to show golden spider webs in volumetric area, just like in nature, without gluing, without circumfusing with resin, without lamination. Mr. Nadezdinskis produced a series of specialized adaptations, including transportation boxes. Everything was made autonomously by self-bought equipment, finding new paths and new technologies. For this purpose, Andrejs Nadezdinskis had created a laboratory-workroom for all his experiments. It took one and a half year to reach his goal. Two summer seasons of 2016 and 2017 were completely devoted to collecting spider webs. This editorial cannot tell all adventures and excitement that he had lived through during this period of time. After enough quantity of spider webs was collected, it was time to go to the next stage – composition's decorative formalization. Every spider web is unique in nature, just like snowflakes. Artwork you can see in pictures has a very specific spider web, not classical – this is a work of a spider with expressionists thinking. Author does not include in composition anything from himself – it is all work of nature in its pure form. The frame is made from high quality oak, its processing and embossing is made by computer numerical control machining, using Mr. Nadezdinskis sketches. Wood is tinted and covered with protective and decorative layer. Author completes the frame with bronze profile with his design and nameplate with annotation to enrich visual perception. Certificate of authenticity is printed on toned glass and placed on the back of the frame, which verifies authenticity of all information (artwork's author, size and year of manufacture). Motto and its author's initials, socket for hanging is also placed on the back of the frame. All decorative elements are covered with gold. Mr. Nadezdinskis provides a special gift box to give a finishing touch to his artworks, on the front side you can also find nameplate with motto. Gift box has a two way appliance – first is decorative, it gives completeness to the idea. Second is functional – box allows to preserve and transport the artwork when necessary. It is equipped with six specialized damping inserts from shock absorbing foam. This helps to transport the artwork with care. In February 2018 artworks were represented in their first exhibition – it took place in gallery MUSEUM LV in Riga, Latvia, where fourteen of Mr. Nadezdinskis works were exhibited.
