Hugo Livet // Geomorphs

Hugo_Livet_December

The geomorphs are hand-printed sculptures that mimic the 3D printing technique using industrial silicone. The shape is not given in advance but is deeply linked with the process, consisting of a succession of silicone layers, each one drawn on top of the other. Thereby the sculpture has been growing, almost like a plant or a fungus.

The project is turning the transcendental and mechanical process of 3d printing into an immanent and emergent phenomenon that makes the sculptures almost look like natural.

 

Hugo Livet

Born on 29/02/1988, live and works in Paris.

My proposals are constructed as scientific experiments, with the difference that the result has nothing to prove, but rather seeks to show and explore a new form or possibility of evolution.

My work summons natural and artificial phenomenons, reusing and diverting the principles they implement.

I use forgery to stimulate the viewer’s intuition of reality, disturbing his or her expectations and perceptions.

I try to make “good fake”, meaning a fake that is exposing itself without lies, tricking people but never for too long, just triggering that brief moment when one begin to imagine a different possibility.
