Tension tries to address the challenge of create something that will always remains static and yet, give the impression of movement.
The tension before the explosion, the motion.
The series is digitally sculpted and hand-crafted in 3d printed resin. It was created in partnership with UniqueBoard.
Tension is the result of an ongoing series of experiments based on the distortion and transformation of the human form. I've always been fascinated by geometry, and at some point I though it was a good idea to try to combine both interests.
I wasn't really interested in "designing" characters. I was actually more interested in creating variations based basically on random parameters. The main inspiration is the Voronoi Diagram, that in VFX and motion graphics is usually associated with destruction effects or breaking objects in an organic way. It was really fun to play with the tools but apply them to a completely different pourpose.
