OPEN STUDIO / Lea Dumayet

During few weeks working at the Fonderia Battaglia, I tried to create the movement of the waves that come from the interior of the liquid, without it exploding like a storm, but rather like a calm ripple. To do it, I used an air compressor tube to blow in hot wax which was cooling. The difficult part was finding exactly the right balance point to get theses waves. I had to blow in the right time not too early not too late, at the good distance, not too far not too close, and with the good pressure not too hard or not too little. I have always been fascinated by the sea and the wind. In this work I have liked to seek to translate them.
