Forms in Nature

Forms in Nature

The Light sculpture Forms in Nature resembles Darwinist Ernst Haeckel’s
drawings . Using a simple action, such as intensifying the brightness at the
center of the artwork, the light transforms the space and adds character, as the
work throws oversized shadows onto walls and ceilings in the space in which it

The light sculpture Forms in Nature is partly inspired by Ernst Haeckel’s (1834-
1919) detailed plots from nature and is a further development of Hilden & Diaz’
fascination with mirrorings, as they have previously applied in other artworks.

Forms in Nature is a artwork with a light source surrounded by a dense and
unruly tree and root system created in minature sculpture. The forest is mirrored
around it’s horizontal central axis and forms a circle 360 degrees around the light
source and thereby leads one onto the notion of a real world versus an


Interestingly, the roots are those elements of the forest that are the most visible.
Thereby the sculpture is not only mirrored, but also turned upside down in Hilden
& Diaz’ artwork. As the intensity of the light source increases, the room changes
and the space slowly becomes more and more fascinating and unheimlich.

The shadows engulfs the room and transforms the walls into unruly shadows of
branches, bushes and gnarled trees. Mirrorings are thrown out upon the walls
and ceilings and provide weak Rorschach-like hints of faces, life and flow of
consciousness. Diming the lights transforms the installation and one senses a
weak fire burning deep in the center of the forest.

    If you are going to ship to Australia, we want a forest sculpture light too-we have a 2 storey void that we think the light will make into a version of middle earth.

  32. Incredibly beautiful! And I am doubly impressed with the duplication of how the “branches” mirror one another. Beautiful, balanced, original and inviting. I would love to have those shadows on my walls. Like sleeping in a faerie woods!

    Whoever made this needs to produce these. They would make a fortune. They wouldn’t be able to make enough of them to fill the demand.
