Holly Armishaw’s Les Mondes Frax 4D has a certain Hadid-ist bravado. The trailblazing series created in 2001 still resonates today and complements the architectural world’s ongoing fascination with blobism – the embracing of all things biomorphic and amoebic. Pleasantly at odds with much of global art’s current fascination with works that appear scribbled and unfinished, Les Mondes Frax 4D feature fluid and curvilinear forms, shapeshifting objects that trail blaze through international locals. A wake-up call to the senses, they celebrate the advent of things to come and all things hyper-new. The whizzing biomorphic shapes act as torchbearers transmuting new ideas, portals into the unknown, the advent of things to come, rendered all shiny and new. The grace, femininity and joi-de-vrie of Armishaw’s digital constructions buffer any fear of the unknown or shock of the new.
