Into the Light

MODWAX Design & Crafts, Milan, Italy

The fundamental idea of this series is an artist's impression on the relationship which exists between space and time in relation to the futuristic dimension. The sculptures represent the formal translation of the two components, which evolve and transform with time. Cascione & Lusciov translated the immateriality of space and time into the pure and abstract form, which transmits the sensation of projection forward towards an unknown and abstract future, to the edge of the universe.

 

The futuristic forms evolve in one direction, which represents the space coordinate and following the curved axis representing the time coordinate, levitating in the dimension without gravity reflecting and irradiating the surrounding light, with an impression, that from one moment to another, they could transform in the flash of glaring light ready for the journey towards hyperspace.

The metal gives materiality to the forms, but at the same time fluidifies the geometries and confers with ambiguous solidity halfway between the solid and liquid state. The artworks are like liquid tunnels, which draw the spectator inside the tunnel of light that flows in the future irradiated with light, making them live the metaphysical experience on the boarders of reality.

The sculpture series gains biomorphic characteristics: from the purity and perfection, leading to biomorphic and primordial forms through deformations and elongations, following the natural metamorphosis, which reaches the appearances of a creature that lives in the luminous perfection in another dimension.

While the sculptures are futuristic and contemporary in appearance, with their organic and geometric shapes, the artists draw upon an ancient artistic tradition by hand carving  and casting them using the lost-wax process. Despite a vast selection of innovative materials available nowadays, the sculptors preferred using bronze, one of the most ancient existing materials, which has extraordinary physical characteristics of alloy invulnerable to the deterioration of time, consenting the artworks to reach the future immutated.

The genesis of work starts from the scientific research and study of pure forms and lines that flow in a precise conceptual drawing of the object being conceived in three dimensions. Sketches, drawings, physical and virtual models were exploited to identify the final geometric form in a detailed manner.
