OTHER SCULPTURES BY ORTHOGONAL INTERSECTION

LIKE NATURE

While reflecting on the implications of this method, I realised that these sculptures take shape following the same rules of nature. natural shapes and assert themselves according to the following pattern:

THE PLAN
The genetic code, which is a complete plan for building up a shape, is modified in compliance with random logic entirely unconnected with the shape to be generated.

THE PROCESS OF BUILDING UP THE SHAPE
If there exist the ideal conditions for the vital process to continue, we have the birth of the shape.

ASSERTION OF THE NEWLY BORN SHAPE
If the modifications produced randomly in the genetic code have created shapes that are “Darwinianly” useful for the survival of the species, they will gradually assert themselves.

The shapes of my sculptures spring from the same basic pattern.
Sculptors have always had a clear idea of the work they intend to create.
Shapes produced by orthogonal intersection, on the other hand, are the result of applying method and the shape generated is virtually unpredictable; it depends solely on the lines I decide to draw on the two sides of the cube or parallelepiped – corresponding to the genetic code of nature.
Shapes generated in this fashion have to be screened by my taste for beauty. Only a few are destined to be transformed into finished works.
