Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

ZigZag is Aspartime’s 2020 art design project, which includes design products, furniture and sculpture. Their art approach is to carve industrially produced foam with heating wire. While the body gets into the space of foam, sculptures are achieved in consequence. The process of carving involves controlling and crossing of time and space, which produces both intentional and unconscious, random and deliberate textures and forms that drift between figurative and abstract with the various visual experiences. Their sculptures may remind you of matters in the natural world: stalactite, sand beach, weathered rocks and wood grain; they might also be the solid-state of sound waves, radio waves and lightwaves; some of them even resemble industrialized forms of order brought by machines like 3D printer. The abstract and the figurative coexist in the course of selection and recombination.
