Christopher Grimes Gallery, Santa Monica and Thomas Schulte Gallery, Berlin: The Armory Show 2014

Storm Prototype II by Inigo Manglano-Ovalle: More and more artists are engaging science in their creative process. From Kysa Johnson, who employs complex physics references in her drawings, paintings and installations to Marc Quinn, who uses cutting edge 3-D scanning and printing technology, to Inigo Manglano-Ovalle and his scientific collaborations with the US Air Force, NASA and the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois.

The highly reflective and visually fluid silver metallic clouds, floating in the Christopher Grimes Gallery and Galerie Thomas Schulte booth at The Armory Show drew quite a crowd this week. The shape of each sculpture is determined by the raw data collected by the scientists and interpreted by Manglano-Ovalle. As a result they appear both abstract and completely recognizable. Each sculpture – a capture of a moment in time when those molecules arranged themselves in that specific form – a challenge to the very nature of constant change and transformation.
