Vaha (Virtual Architecture Handicraft Art) experiments with algorithmic design and digital fabrication. Innovative technologies are interpreted with an ancient feel.
Environmental parameters (sun, wind…) and natural, local materials (wood, earth…) are used.
The project tells the changes and the uniqueness of each moment.
The images are drawn from the sun shadows.
The complexity of the (apparent) solar path involves a different opera at different times of day and on different days of the year. However the solar sculpture culminates in two moments of every day, which reveal two aspects of the same subject: a bare tree, a flourishing tree.
The subject is itself a symbol of change and the sun is the creator of visual changes in the sculpture and real changes in the tree.
The relationship between the sun and the opera symbolically mimics the sun’s own relationship with the tree, which in turn becomes a symbol of life, which is constantly changing.
