Abstract:

Carlo Borer creates objects made of chromium steel or aluminum, which he designs, develops, and constructs on a 3D-CAD system. Rotation and the perfect relationship of tension between dynamism and static equilibrium play an important role in the definition of forms. They are cut with a laser from sheet metal, curved, and welded. The publication brings together Borer's sculptures, statues, and installations, which he gives titles such as "transformers," "loops," or "clouds," as well as his "spaceships" and "no readymades." These objects suggest a presumed use and deceive one into thinking that they are utilitarian objects from a technically advanced civilization, mislead in a tongue-in-cheek manner.
