Glass Like Water: Aerial by Baptiste Debombourg

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 27, 2012
Glass riding in like the tide is the best way to describe what French artist Baptiste Debombourg created with Aerial, an installation at Brauweiler Abbey, a Benedictine monastery near Cologne, Germany. As the glass hits the floor, Debombourg creates the effect of layered ocean tides creeping onto the stone ground, a magnificent result. The work was completed on April 14, 2012, and took over 420 hours to complete.

Oh, so you counted? The work, Aggravure III, was inspired by the work of 16th Century artists and engravers, Hendrick Goltzius, Jan Harmensz, and Cherubino Alberti.
