3D printed blue discs craft vincent leroy’s Point Cloud

 

French artist Vincent Leroy presents his latest creation, Point Cloud, a mobile crafted from composite materials and 3D printed components. After exploring Iceland’s glaciers and Canada’s lakes, Leroy brings his work to the Greek island of Santorini with Point Cloud. The installation features a fractal structure that comes to life with gentle movement, its intense blue discs reflecting the tones of the sky and the Aegean Sea. The installation is designed to be lightweight and responsive to the slightest breeze, allowing the blue point cloud to rise and move gracefully against the Santorini sky.

kinetic installation moves gracefully with the breeze

 

Leroy‘s approach blends technology with poetic expression, creating an aerial and adaptable installation. Transparent and colored dots overlap to merge the sky and sea in various shades of blue. As the wind flows through the mobile, a silent dialogue emerges between the artwork, natural elements, and the surrounding landscape.

 

To achieve a fluid and light movement, the artist employs aeronautical technology, while 3D printing allows for innovative design that surpasses the mechanical limitations of traditional materials like aluminum and steel. This integration of technology and natural elements is the central concept behind Point Cloud.
