Weekly Photo Challenge: curving towards reality

The delicate curves of this sculpture remind me of ballet; of a dancer rehearsing – probably something like The Maple Leaf Rag.

I can imagine the  upright piano in the corner, with a long-haired, wild eyed young man playing for a solitary dancer who moves about the floor.

The designer is my partner. He’s an engineer by profession, and an artist in his soul. His mastery of the technology allows him to imagine works of art, and create them in a virtual world – but one that can intersect with reality.

  1. I said in my latest assignment about curatorial theme at a well known sculpture exhibition that the future would probably involve a lot more technology and showed Maurice’s dish as an example of this. So now we just have to work out how we could display it, then Big T could be an exhibited artist. You never know he might sell something, then he could join the board!
