RECOM provided support for the latest cooperation between photographer Andrei Duman and LEGO® artist Nathan Sawaya, with a playful take on nothing less than the meaning of our existence. It is a deeply personal series and one whole year in the making – inspired by a family member’s battle with dementia.
Andrei’s initial idea consisted of visually depicting the concept of deterioration, but after a bit of research, he discovered the artwork of Lego sculptor Nathan Sawaya, and his focus changed from the concept of deterioration to an examination of a more nuanced balance between life and decay. Just as cells are the building blocks of life, LEGO®s are the building blocks for the series titled ‘Organogenesis: Building Blocks of Life.’
Andrei photographed each piece in his studio and then collaborated with the post production specialists from RECOM to bring each image to life. Each of the LEGO® bricks, which appear to be moving in the images, was photographed individually to make sure the final image looked as real as possible. Thousands of individual bricks later, the final images began to come together to create the series ‘Organogenesis: Building Blocks of Life.’
These images blend science, art and philosophy, providing food for thought about our existence as well as the delicate balance between life and decay.
The works will be on display in Paris during the extensive exhibition ‘The Art of the Brick’ which starts on 15 December, 2023, in Montparnasse in the former building of Galeries Lafayette.
