Forms in Nature

20130406-120232.jpgForms 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 hangs.

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 underworld.


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.

    The artistic design alone is quite beautiful! To have a piece of art function visually is outstanding! I also would love to own this at a reasonable price! The shadows are relaxing, magical, & stunning!

      Why does everyone from Brazil ALWAYS have to mention that they’re from Brazil every time they leave a comment?

    I would love to purchase one! Please post information if you do decide to sell these! Kickstarter would be a good way to produce and get funding if you need help with production/startup costs. http://www.kickstarter.com

      They already sold out the first batch :P
      Sadly for astronomic price, so nothing for us, art-appreciating mortals :(

        I was very disappointed when I saw the prices. You must be wealthy to own one. I think they are spectacular.

    This and maybe others like it would be fantastic for people like me. I am disabled and losing ground fast in my ability to get around on my own. I used to camp, hike, just sit in the woods and relax. I also have 3 sons, 2 of whom are severe and profoundly handicapped. I think something like this would do them a great deal of good. Not the least would be the ability, I believe to help others like me who suffer with depression. Please consider making these available for purchase.

    I am quite impressed by this design. My compliments.

    We were wondering if anyone in the Netherlands is having a dealership for your products.

    If so I would be interested to learn about the address, prices etc

    Thank you.
