Fluid Bodies_Methods for Casting New Esthetics
Edited by Rupert Zallmann and the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna (Eds.)
Fluid Bodies presents a variety of objects created using alternative casting methods. The book documents experimental artistic research and showcases innovative and surprising sculptures in concrete and plaster with numerous large-format photographs.Concrete and plaster sculptures, parametric designs, and the further development of conventional formwork models and casting processes: Working with hardening bodies fundamentally challenges the notion of formal rigidity; conventional formwork models are reconsidered, and a new aesthetic emerges.
