Digital Renderings Inspired By Mono-ha Sculptures


Swedish art director Anders Brasch-Willumsen has created a series of digital images inspired by sculptures of the Japanese art movement Mono-ha. Translating as ‘School of Things’, the movement presented minimal sculptures created in a specific context, often combining man-made and natural materials. In ‘Rocks and Light’, Brasch-Willumsen explores the ephemeral nature of Mono-ha sculptures. When considering that many of these works exist only as photographs, Brasch-Willumsen was compelled to create and preserve his own, following his usual practice of making 3D rendered artworks. Each digital image is dominated by a composition of virtual forms, appearing as iridescent orbs, neon lights, and rocks. The artist’s decision to infuse natural and manufactured materials in a digitally rendered space enables him to establish a “grey zone, somewhere between the prehistoric and the futuristic — between the real and the virtual.”
