Long Vase [prototype] by Martin Born
Long Vase [prototype]
Vase with multiple water tanks.
With its equivalent and indefinite structure, the Long vase parts with the centric model of thought that is the basis of the common vase type. It displaces the flower from its traditional position as an icon of uniqueness, and puts it in a context of parallelity, in which it is now but a particle in an indifferent symmetry.
This mass-aesthetical perspective touches on questions concerning the possibility and relevance of formal composition, here e.g. in regard of the creation of a bouquet.
