Blue Milk

Blue Milk, 2014Posted by Admin Apr 04, 2014 18:12:10

Blue Milk invites multiple modes of habitation and is characterised by iridescent swells of blue which reveal a rich monochromatic spectrum across its compound volume.

Its sweeping form simultaneously embraces the user when positioned on its concave elevation, whilst creating a dissection by means of a blade-like vertical horizon line originating at its rear. This vertical blade transitions into distinct horizontal wave forms on each side elevation, creating structural forces that synthesise form, function and surface flow, marking the transition between the blade and waves by blurred surfaces in motion.

The color is inspired by the climactic scene in Jean Luc Godard’s Pierrot le Fou in which the protagonist blows himself up with dynamite after applying blue paint to face.
