on H-edge, on Danzer! Cecil Balmond's Solid Void goes Element-al in Tokyo
via ArchNewsNow and the Dezeen website, we bring you their story on the latest version of engineer/architect Cecil Balmond's roving exhibition exploring architecture, form, and geometry, Element, at the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery. It looks like many of the old favorites of Solid Void, mounted at Graham Foundation a while back, are still around, reconceived in installation, to which have been added photographs and text from Balmond's latest book, also named Element, in which, like a hog ferrets out truffles, he discovers and depicts the deep patterns behind the world's beauty. Read what we wrote about Balmond, his remarkable work and thought, and his Chicago exhibition here.
