Quayola: Matter

Video Projection

‘Matter’ is a time-based digital sculpture. It describes a continuous dynamic articulation of a solid, pure block of matter, from the simplest primitive forms to the highest details of geometric complexities, and vice versa.

The subject of this piece is Rodin’s sculpture ‘Le Penseur’ (The Thinker). Rather than starting with a photographic image of the work, the sculpture was digitally reproduced using 3D animation software and rendered in Cinema 4D, producing a 10 minute video rendered at an enormous 4K resolution.
