Resonance, 2007

Made of polyamide powder, Resonance is a sculpture that was produced using a rapid prototyping SLC technique. It explores the field of fluid mechanics to arrive at the materialization of the natural movement of an expanding wave. For Díaz, this exploration of the ungraspable aspects of the physical world comprises both a technological and a philosophical dimension: the artist seeks to capture the ‘cosmic resonance’ of energy flows in order to study their materiality and their transformational potential. Computer analysis (using Real Flow software) enables the artist to manipulate electromagnetic vibrations like a virtual liquid, whose physical characteristics (energy, viscosity, surface tension, friction, etc.) can be defined and altered arbitrarily, thereby enabling the examination of its different formal manifestations.
