Evanescence of Steel

Intriguing contrast between reality and perception

What we call reality could just be an illusion. What do we know of the underlying nature the universe ?

Julian Voss-Andreae brings us some elements of our spiritual essence and opens our eyes to an intriguing contrast between reality and perception.


This sculpture comprises of evenly spaced polished stainless-steel slabs with gaps in between, which makes it virtually disappear when viewed face-on.

Spannungsfeld

This sculptural installation at the University of Minnesota’s new Physics and Nanotechnology Building is inspired by a view of the human body through the lens of quantum physics.

The German title of the installation (literally “tension field”) originated in physics but is used in contemporary German in a metaphorical sense, implying a dynamic tension between opposites that can't exist without the other.

The Reader

The Reader for Portland Community College’s new Southeast Campus and Library is a monumental female figure sitting cross-legged on the lawn, reading a large book.

It first appears made of solid steel when approached from the side but virtually disappears when viewed face-on, making the sculpture highly engaging to diverse audiences.
