North Atlantic 1997
Initial Model

The origin of tactile V.16 resembles an excavation, an archaeology of the beautiful and sublime

tactile V.16´s shape mirrors personally touching images and moments: the minke whales in the North Atlantic, whose backs were stretching as elegantly and powerfully as a bow when diving. The rolling hills and craggy cliffs of my daily environment slipped into the design as well as the driftwood from the nearby beach, telling a story of transience and consistency. tactile V.16 is not ment to copy nature. Its forms rather pay tribute to the creativity of evolution. It is like a journey through time - from the dawn of mankind, via the achievement of the hand-axe and further into the virtual world of our present networking society.
