An internationally exhibited artist and designer, Adarsh Nellore, revealed his latest collection, “(Un)objects,” at the first Miami edition of Alcova. The event, hosted at the Selina Gold Dust Motel from December 5-10, witnessed Nellore’s avant-garde exploration of digital realms, human-centered design, and the convergence of data and material in contemporary art.
Nellore’s innovative approach revolves around the fusion of advanced 3D scanning technology with a novel sculptural technique, resulting in a series of unconventional objets d’art. Room 37 at the Selina Gold Dust Motel served as the canvas for this artistic journey, featuring five notable highlights from Nellore’s previous European exhibitions alongside the much-anticipated Helix collection.
The Helix collection, a collaboration with German manufacturer Sandhelden, shows Nellore’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of artistic expression. Comprising never-before-seen side tables crafted from binder-jetted sand, these pieces showcase a harmonious blend of technological innovation and artistic vision.
Nellore reflects on the essence of “(Un)objects” and the Helix collection, stating, “In today’s world, we tend to value the data that describes a physical object more than the object itself, making the implied more important than the actual, and making objects (un)objects. The new Helix collection pieces I will debut at Alcova are in line with my ongoing exploration of digitally implied forms, or (un)objects, in the natural world. They are crafted in the shape of their namesake, one of the most fundamental and commonly occurring forms in nature.”
The pieces in the Helix collection are crafted in the shape of their namesake, one of the most fundamental and commonly occurring forms in nature. Through this, Nellore not only pays homage to nature’s intrinsic beauty but also challenges conventional perceptions of design by infusing machine intelligence into the creative process.
Nellore’s visionary designs transcend traditional artistic boundaries, leveraging generative algorithms, photogrammetry, and advanced additive manufacturing techniques. Collaborating with machine intelligence, he recreates a diverse range of forms, from interior objects to human anatomies, offering a glimpse into a new era of design where data becomes material, and forms are shaped by machine perception.
Alcova Miami served as the perfect backdrop for Nellore’s artistic exploration, providing a platform for his (un)conventional creations to captivate audiences. The event marked a significant moment in the evolution of contemporary design, as “(Un)objects” beckons viewers to reconsider the relationship between data and material, challenging preconceptions and opening doors to a new realm of creative possibilities. Adarsh Nellore’s innovative vision promises to inspire and reshape the landscape of design for years to come.
