On the opening day of the show Hyundai Motor will unveil its all-new kinetic art installation, which is part of its ‘Sculpture in Motion’ project.
Sculpture in Motion is Hyundai Motor’s ongoing collaborative project with artists that help consumers experience and connect with its ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design philosophy.
The ‘Sculpture in Motion’ project name encapsulates motion within a space and between spaces – hinting at how Hyundai Motor is sharing art by bringing displays to different cities around the world.
This year, bringing movement to life, the latest installation – entitled ‘Helio Curve’, takes on the form and motion of a continuously moving wave, with wooden blocks connecting to mimic a living organism, demonstrating the way a ‘moment of motion’ can take a more tangible, sculptural form.
Collaborating with Hyundai Design Center, California-based artist Reuben Margolin has created an engaging and immersive large-scale kinetic installation that combines the logical world of mathematics with the complex movements, structures and sensuousness of nature.
To maximize the impact of Helio Curve, Hyundai’s Sound Design Research Lab has developed the ‘Sculpture in Motion 2.0 Soundtrack’ which takes inspiration from the new artwork’s movement and pays homage to nature’s vibrant yet tranquil energy.
The Soundtrack will make its premier during a special DJ Show on April 13 when the new artwork is revealed.
Full details of Helio Curve will be released on April 13.
