3D Process Art
Process art is concerned with action, which can be defined as the actual artwork and engages the audience to participate in the actual process. Above are images of a 3D process art installation that explored the meaning of minimalism.
Minimalism is an American movement in the visual arts and music originating in New York City in the late 1960s and characterized by extreme simplicity of form and a literal objective approach. Minimal art is the culmination of reductions in modern art and is often misunderstood by the general public.
The intention of this installation was to strengthen the argument that simplistic art and design is often the most difficult to create. In my opinion, minimalism has a profound depth and meaning. The process art was composed of two 3D renders, a simplistic black circle isolated on a starch white background and a sophisticated set of complex mechanical gears. The two renders were adhered to a foam core frame, allowing the simplistic render to cover the complex render. During the installation the audience participated in destroying the artwork by tearing back the simplistic render to reveal a complex render underneath. The process further solidified the complexity and meaning of minimalism within the context of art and design.
