series of five wall reliefs \ 2010-2011
wood and metallic vinyl, dimensions variable
Creative Suite is a series of wall sculptures of geometric shapes that hover between line drawing and 3-dimensional structure. Through the playful juxtaposition of the wood frame with curling metallic vinyl, the shapes resemble mind tricks of irresolvable spatial configurations, but also allude to shapes, masses and reflective surfaces in the urban environment. Based on the startup animations featured in various modules of the Adobe Creative Suite 5 software package, the series activates a tension between figurative associations and abstraction, and between the utopian potentials of design and the material limitations of representation.
