12-14 Weeks Lead-Time
By Karl Zahn
Landscape is a continuation of Karl Zahn's Momentum Series, interpretations of form and balance. In contrast to the kinetic nature of the earlier works, these new pieces hold a softer, gentler place. There is a smoothness and solidity to the pieces, a departure from last year. Allowing lines to connect visually instead of literally with chain and metal, the viewer assumes a more integral role as a participant. Not only does the work require physical interaction to set it in motion, but visual attention to translate and resolve optical effects. All parts are turned, machined, cut, polished, bent and balanced by the designer's hand.
