A true revelation
"...I called my girlfriend and was like, "Lucy, Lucy, come, come and check this out."(laughs) It was crazy! And then we were just amazed. It was so, it was such a visually exciting thing. We just thought, "Wow, this is something, this is a moment." You could feel it. It was a moment for me particularly because it was the area that had always been dear to my heart in a way, but I'd never been able to find my own direction in. It, it was suddenly like, "This is it. This is how I'm gonna explore now, no one else is doing this. So this is my doorway into that world." I still use that mechanism! I still use it..." - Ivan Black
AWARD WINNING ARTIST
About Ivan Black
Ivan Black (b. 1972) London, is an award winning British sculptor. He began making sculptures at an early age, motion quickly becoming central to his work, adding another dimension of complexity and interest to his experiments.Ivan Black’s work uses a series of unique mechanisms to create moving sculptures. Energy is channeled into Black’s works through anything from the interaction of the viewer to the natural power of blowing wind and the targeted use of principles of gravity. When the intended form of energy interacts with the sculpture, it plays out a chain reaction creating shifting patterns of motion from random to highly organised movements.

Ivan Black on discovering complex, fluid movements
"...I was trying to replicate a spiral from a previous sculpture. So I hung it up from a piece of fishing line and gave it a spin, and then it just did something that was so infinitely more dynamic than what I expected! Just the way that it changed, but it didn't just change, it just kept changing..." - Ivan Black
