Hurricanes, pulsars and other curious curves

Carlo Borer creates objects from chrome steel or aluminium, which he designs, develops and constructs using 3D CAD. Rotation and the perfect tension ratio between dynamics and statics play an important role in defining the shapes. The shapes are cut from sheet metal, rounded and welded using a laser. The publication brings together Borer’s sculptures, sculptures or installations, which he calls “Transformers”, “Loops” or “Clouds”, as well as his “Spaceships” and “No Readymades”. These objects suggest a supposed use and pretend to be utilitarian objects of a technically advanced civilisation.
