From the research on the Jupiter column, a series of small god statues came into being. As in LUIZADO, archaeological findings – such as helmets, armour, busts and columns – are a direct source of inspiration. The observer recognises some elements, but will discover new shapes as well. APSAADU hovers between the virtual and the real world. Designing this shape using a computer, the artist creates very complex forms which cannot be created by means of hand-drawn sketches. The design process of this work is very closely related to a new form of architecture which is commonly referred to as ‘blob architecture’. This kind of computer-aided designs resulting in organic, amoeba-shaped, bulging forms was firstly explored by an architect named Greg Lynn in 1995. This is a new movement whereby architects remove themselves from the previous linear and corner- like box structures and instead turn to rounded, bulging shapes as structural forms.
