Material Research

 

 

 

 

For a material research,
Rik explored materials that can be melted and poured.
After making his own oven,
He could generate enough heat to melt aluminium.

Pouring liquid aluminium results
in free natural shapes that hardens within a few second.
These natural shapes are enclosed by
a second layer that is poured over,
thereby creating a natural flow of aluminium
embracing itself.
This embracing is a crucial point
of the construction,
allowing layers to get stuck within each other.
