Nexus ‘Forms'' Installation

Forms is a series of studies on human motion, and its reverberations through space and time.

It is inspired by the works of Eadweard Muybridge, Harold Edgerton, Étienne-Jules Marey as well as similarly inspired modernist cubist works such as Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase No.2. Rather than focusing on observable trajectories, it explores techniques of extrapolation to sculpt abstract forms, visualizing unseen relationships - power, balance, grace and conflict - between the body and its surroundings.

The project investigates athletes; pushing their bodies to their extreme capabilities, their movements shaped by an evolutionary process targeting a winning performance. An on-going collaboration between visuals artists Memo Akten and Quayola, this installation was originally commissioned as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad for the National Media Museum in Bradford.
