Sven Odermatt – ColorBath
with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Carolien Niebling
My project is the fruit of my questioning of the growing automation and robotisation of industry. Do human beings still have a place in this industrialised process or are there stages where their contribution might compete with that of the machines? My project consists of faceted modules made of aluminium sheet. Each of them has been manually dipped in colour baths. The result is surfaces with varying hues, drips and other defects that produce unpredictable, highly expressive results.
