The Fountain of Sven Bertil Taube, Hyperdrawing, part two, by Cecilia Margareta Tjärnberg 2018


Spolia


(Text 3. Final words, by Cecilia)


This work concerns curiosity found in translation. Through capturing reality seen through a camera lens, the images assembled have generated my space. Space which immediately shrunk compared to the original donor structure. My world became this new dimension, my very own up-side-down. It gradually becomes more abstracted. In one area I can identify the materials used, then to find my self in a surrealistic wonderland. A bit dark perhaps.


The presented project is the result of an individual investigation that took place after a group exercise of documenting a donor structure found in heterotopia which is Gröna Lund. My main interest is found in the translations of information through different media. The theme embraced throughout the course is the idea of working with spolia. Location: Konstfack, or University College of Arts. Teacher: Einar Rodhe, Senior Lecturer, Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design, Department of Design, Interior Architecture and Visual Communication (DIV) and James Hamilton, guest teatcher - . Guest critic: Konstantinos Pantazis from Point Supreme 

The sculpture of Sven-Bertil Taube digitally unfolded and 3d printed. Sven-Bertil is now no longer locked in his initial posed position is resting comfortably on a sculptural super-sofa. The design behind the sofa is based on data pulled from Sven-Bertil's own form. In this surrealistic alternative world, he is stretching out in his own hand.

The Fountain, Hyperdrawing, part one, by Cecilia Margareta Tjärnberg and Revaz Berdzenishvili. Together we messured the area of the fountain and collected 3d data through both photogramerty and hands on clay reliefes. In the first hyperdrawing this data is compiled.

Laconic creation constantly keeps the movement of the water and houses organic life. Fleeting mirrors create portals to “the other space” to a heterotopia. Slivers of the surrounding architecture shimmers at us as we move around the fountain. The Mexican food court, the pastel colored façade of the American 50 ́s hotdog stand, roller-coasters in the distance. Though in contrast to its material context the logic of the fountain is ephemeral and it is depressed.

Detail, a drawing based om a inital physical hands on relief. The relief was 3d scaned at Konstfack using light structure scaning. The digital model of the relief was used as a cast creating the detail of the sculpture of Sven-Bertil Taube as seen above.
