About the artwork
To portray the feeling of being safe, Jesper set a familiar yet abstract tone, using tactile objects and materials. The piece is divided into 3 sections; soft bodies, foam and cloth. Each represents different layers of protection however, all share the same caring and comforting aspect. The marble statue is not only a link that illustrates the fragile and beautiful but is also humanising and identifiable.
With the colourful visual language in this piece, Jesper set out to create a soothing and appealing experience for the viewers.
Using a zero gravity scene setup, SideFx Houdini helped Jesper create complex simulations of the foam, cloth and soft-bodies. An orbital force, and attraction points set across the statue, the simulated objects created a flowing dance-like motion with moments of cushioning and moulding. In each section of the piece, a different type of simulation was required.
