arik levy: genetic intimacy

alon segev gallery presents ‘genetic intimacy’ – the artwork of french-israeli multi-disciplinary creative arik levy – demonstrating the levy’s ability to seamlessly move between the worlds of artist, technician, photographer and designer. the pieces are an example of levy’s compelling interest in process and the evolution of an idea, each artwork revealing his research exploring the links between social signals, behavior and science. the artist describes his intent for the showing: genetic intimacy’ comes as an evolution of the rock and of my re-organized genetics narrative. ‘genetic intimacy’ is where one can come in to observe and get to be part of these ideas. not that non-intimate relation does not influence but being part of it is a possibility  to change or realize physical parameters of such evolution.’

  • wow.
    this is so bad im inspired to make my first ever, and hopefully only, comment on design bomb.
    what and why is this even here?
    is the editor on holiday?
    photshop + rhino + cinema4d…
    im pretty sure highschool students are making more innovative art than this.

    simon says:
  • what are you two idiots even talking about?
    most designers/artists use computer software, duh

    @simon i’d like to see your website/work
    to see where your innovation or creativity stands.

    alvaro says:
  • The 3D design process behind the sculptures is the equivalent of doodling with a pencil. However they look nice executed in these materials.
    I agree with Simon about the paintings. Mindless translation of screen pixels to paint. A waist of resources.

    Airborne says:
  • The white Crater marble – however it was achieved or however facile the conception – looks really nice, and I’m not so sure I’ve seen this particular form with the hollows before.

    douglas montgomery says:
  • … no actually, the white Crater Marble looks exquisite – to be precise
