Héctor Esrawe’s Fluid Sculptures Make Lighting into Art
At MASA gallery’s “Recover/Uncover” exhibition in a stately Mexico City mansion earlier
this year, design polymath Héctor Esrawe presented Shifting Parábola, two fluid sculptures that explore the way light travels over a continuous metal surface. Matte-finish brass ribbons drape like tensile satin from anchor points on ceiling, wall, or floor. LEDs nestled
into crooks bounce light onto the 7.8-inch-wide brass strips. There are two variants: 01, which touches the floor, and 02, which does not. The
former measures 153 inches high by 49 wide, the latter 118 by 55. Each is limited to a run of 10. Get in quick.
