BECCA AND BEN BOLSCHER - FLORAL FUSION

"Floral fusion" works to the brief as it represents form in space. With negative and positive attributes (laser cut sections of petals) and explores contrasting ideas, the raw and tough elements of steel from Fletcher Easysteel's stock and the delicate nature of the floral forms.

The intertwined flowers represent the collaboration of ideas between the two designers (visual artist graduate and visual effect artist). The stamen represents creativity, the piece that unites the two individuals, who work in different creative fields

2.5 metre diameter (variable)
Weight approx 200kg

Art In Structure – background
The competition was run during late 2015 for Professionals and Emerging Designers to design a steel structure that explored the connection between steel and the urban landscape.

This was a world’s first virtual design competition, whereby the 12 finalists had their designs loaded in to an augmented reality app to be displayed to the public. Judging took place in March 2016 at the Wynyard Quarter in Auckland, when the public voting chose Becca and Ben Bolscher’s “Floral Fusion” as the winner of the Emerging Designer category and Rose Petterson’s “Divine Star” as the winner of the Professional Designer category.

ALL proceeds from the two auctions will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities by Fletcher Steel.

VIEWING
The two sculptures are being exhibited at Art Industry in Clevedon (http://artindustry.co.nz) from Thursday 23rd March until Sunday 9th April. We will be on site on the three Sundays to demonstrate the augmented reality used in the early stages of the competition, but the sculptures can be viewed on any day during the auction.

Art In Structure is a bi-annual competition run by Fletcher Steel to support the use of steel by emerging and established artists in New Zealand.
