Gilbert Riedelbauch

About the work

One geometric object encased in another, like a casing storing its seed, this object seems to hold an inner shape ready to break through. Ambiguous through its abstraction, material and placement, it could stand for containing and protecting – not unlike the charge in a battery. Storage of energy one of our biggest challenges – already solved in every seed by nature.
