As if the melting snow trickles through the valley, pours into the rivers and finally reaches the lake, Drop is a minimal sculpture exploring the unpredictable journey of water ─ how it rolls, divides and merges into highly mobile shapes.
Water is ever-changing. However, within a drop, you can feel the time gets frozen and encased in this tiny sphere. It is an essence of the fluid substance; a capture of the ephemeral moment. Every turn is unpredictable.
Taking the landscape as an inspiration, Drop is made of noble white marble with paths engraved on top. The piece transforms mountain shapes into a well-organized form, seeking the beauty out of the precision.
Drop is the winning project of 2021 La Prairie x Ecal Award
