This Seat is Saved: Growing Spiky Crystal Chairs

tokujin-yoshioka-spiders-thread-chair-factory-600x463Every artist these days seems to be coming up with some unique form of art to set them apart form other artists. Instead of just being better at painting or sculpture that the other guy artists are making up their own thing that they can be mediocre at and still excel. Artist Tokujin Yoshioka created a new exhibition called TOKUJIN YOSHIOKA_Crystallize at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. In this exhibit he’s featuring chairs he made with his new process.

Seven threads are stretched and tighten between the frame like a Spider’s web, and draw a three dimensional sketch of a chair in the air. By growing crystals on this structure made by only seven thin threads, it becomes a crystal structure that set a form of a chair. Simplifying the volume of its form as much as possible and following the natural form, a sculpture of chair will appear formed by the power of nature.

These chairs look pretty delicate so I’m sure I wouldn’t be allowed to sit on them. Th again, they’re pretty spiky so I don’t think I’d like the experience anyhow.
