Interview with Laurent Martin “Lo”

Design 360 °

“360° — Most of your bamboo art works seem to be a game of balance between bamboo and the ceramic ball. Do their creation concepts and art forms come from your thinking about life or humanity?

L — The equilibrium in things arises from gravity. The high temperature ceramic balls define the gravity space in which I work. The complex process and simple structure of bamboo allow me to develop systems where movement, vibration, space and light coincide. My works are always comprised by 4 elements of life: water and air in bamboo, earth and fire in ceramic. The bamboo gives me its high spiritual, mental, poetic and philosophical essence. It is related to life and humanity.”
