Nick Ervinck at Volta NY 2010 Contemporary Art Show

Posted by baad lamb

Nick Ervinck's video was easily my favorite thing at the Volta NY 2010 show; I went back to immerse myself in its gooey yellow Fantastic Voyage goodness numerous times. This is just a tiny snippet of the mesmerizing video that took up most of his booth. It simulates traveling through and around one of the curvaceous, complicated computer generated shapes he created, in this case totally out-Zaha-ing Ms. computer-curve-Hadid herself.
In our brief discussion, he explained that he is intrigued by unbuildable architecture. No doubt anticipating that "unbuildable" today is iconic "landmark" tomorrow.

His website displays all the fascinating twists and turns of this young, exciting and in-demand Belgian artist, sculptor, and theorist..

More Volta and Scope to come as time permits….
