EITOZOR is based on a 19th century baroque wallpaper, which has been digitally converted into a wall drawing. After that, the drawing was interpreted as a spatial sculpture.EITOZOR balances between the real and the virtual, between future and history, between design and sculpture, and between handwork and computer design. The observer has the impression that he walks in a virtual world, as Nick Ervinck not only digitally designed this piece, but transformed the exhibition space into a digital black box as well. The room is made black and reminds of the black background used in 3D-software programs. With EITOZOR, Nick Ervinck found a language to translate his fictional world into a material object which seems to float in space. This work thus is a perfect and seamless synthesis of the virtual and physical aspects of contemporary sculpture.
