铜的自然生长 是罗黛诗“生物学创造研究”中的最新系列作品。以铜材料为媒介,通过设计和科学的综合应用,设计材料的色彩行为,让其自然生长出星空、沟壑、植物、海洋…在空气、时间中凝结成独特的图案与肌理。犹如铜透过色彩语言演绎着无境的宇宙。

Spontaneous growth of copper is the latest series in Luo Daishi’s Bio-design programs. She uses a comprehensive application of design and science to fine-tune the behaviour of materials and awaken the colour of copper from a biological perspective. The stars, gullies, trees, oceans grow from colours…just like copper show the boundless universe through colour language.

This is not only about the study of materials, but also the study of Bio-design thinking. We range from simulating nature to designing nature to natural creation; from industrial production assembly to the self-generated growth of matter. Could this change in creative thinking make things more creative?

This research began in the Manman series 2016. How to respect the material properties and stimulate the vitality of materials is the direction I always explore. In this new series, I used the video, photography, sculpture, painting, and books to create works. Each piece has an independent form but is highly unified in the project, and is dedicated to presenting the biology of copper from a multidimensional perspective.

In order to maximize the release of copper’s vitality, I studied the factors that how natural make copper change color, learn copper coloring art and related metal crafts, and transform them into a mode of natural growing through a large number of practices – There is expected to lead growth in minimal human intervention.The Skin Growth is a Project that explores the vitality of copper, natural and unnatural, rational and emotional, science and art in a variety of ways, combining traditional craftsmanship and science, I use the principle of chemical reaction to activate the color of copper. But I am only an objective medium in the process, and cooperrate with the air and time to shape natural form like plants, coral, and meridian. Copper gradualy grow “colorful skin” of different character in orderly control.
