Soma is a magnificent mystery with its free flowing form and exceptional presence. The unique light sculpture caught my gaze for quite a moment. Soma light sculptures display a universal dimension; they are representations of the essence of nature in its most abstract form, standing for frozen memories existing beyond time and space.
The Soma light sculptures are composed of layers in fine meshing of colorful/transparent 2mm wide glass filaments meticulously and thoroughly intertwined. The crystal-like form is then encased in a polymer web, creating a surface that resembles a brittle, fragile cocoon.
Soma is designed by Ayala Serfaty, in her own words “The research is free of end use or time limits; it is only committed to becoming authentic to its own nature.” Each sculpture is a representation of an enchanting moment in a physical form. The layers, shadows and shapes are all inspiring. The Soma light installation is on exhibit at Museum Beelden Aan Zee, in Den Haag, Netherlands until February 1st. I’m so pleased to share such an inspirational piece with you.
