A.M.O.S. DESIGN invited sculptor Tomas Medec to explore the use of Corian® in his artwork. The result, POLLEN IV, is astounding. A simple, yet extremely complicated organic shape. A sphere is “curved” elaborately, resembling the internal structure of a sponge. Complexity in simplicity is the best description for this project. A simple geometry acquires a natural shape and structure projecting the structure of the universe surrounding us. From the shape of the sponge to the Earth itself, simple geometries enclose extremely complicated structures. Even in philosophy and science, very simple theorems and concepts are mere abstractions of complex and diverse systems. With POLLEN IV, Tomas Medec makes a sleek projection of the world we live in and an exquisite study of the structure of things.
Technically speaking, the use of Corian makes the realization of this project easier. According to the artist: “Corian can be used very well as a sculptural material, because it is not so hard as marble or granite. This means it can be worked more easily, using common tools. It can also be stuck together and the connection is not apparent at all. Moreover, the material enables creating of hollow objects, which is impossible with common sculptural materials. Another good property of this material I appreciate very much is its strength, which allows the formation of fine self-bearing structures…”
