Cocky Eek



Some great inspirational images from the work of Cocky Eek, using different transparent and reflective materials into natural environments, playing with wind and light forming interesting organic sculptures in the air. Into the post you can see Illumine and Scapes projects, in a previous post I posted several pictures from Blobs and Float (see here) which shows lab set-ups for exploration in equilibriums, floating rooms, and space toys in connection with the human body, interesting too!

ILLUMINE

'The first corporeal form which some call corporeity is in my opinion light.' Robert Grosseteste

They become alive when starting to breath moving their inner light space the skin is the beholder of their integrity preventing themselves for being solved in outer space

Noctiluca miliaris, or “thousand nightlights”, or many people call it the "light of the sea". It is an organism which looks like a transparant balloon with a small tail. It produces that bioluminecense light of the sea, to scare of its predators. One summernight I swom with a transparant costum stuffed with small glow in the dark sticks in the nortsea. I was an obvious enemy; the Noctilucaas started to flash their lights and intermingled with my the "glow in the darks" of the costum. Only a few passengers were witness of a luminous phenomenology and all what's left is a picture of an empty costum after the performance..."





SCAPES

"White Sands Various forms of dunes are found within the limits of White Sands in New Maxico. Dome dunes are found along the southwest margins of the field, transverse and barchan in the core of the field, and parabolic dunes occur in high numbers along the northern, southern, and northeastern margins. These dunes contain solely of Gypsum which is rarely found in the form of sand because it is water-soluble. Normally, rain would dissolve the gypsum and carry it to the sea. The Tularosa Basin is enclosed, meaning that it has no outlet to the sea and that rain that dissolves gypsum from the surrounding Mountains is trapped within the basin. The dunes constantly change shape and slowly move downwind."
