'A Symbolic Inscription of the Imaginary'
If Massimo Vitali, Josef Albers, Sonia Delaunay, Vasa Mihich and Steve Reich would have raised a child together, the result could have been Nicholas Elias. To create his monumental glass sculptures, Nicholas Elias takes the phasing techniques used by 1960s composer Steve Reich and applies them to an architectural context. A couple of years ago we consulted with Nicholas about the possibility of featuring his monumental glass sculpture titled 'A Symbolic Inscription of the Imaginary' in a sculpture garden in California. Unfortunately our talks fell through because of the substantial cost involved. So Larry Gagosion, if you are reading this, this is your chance for sweet romance.
