Live Vector

The MM Gerdau - Museum of Mines and Metal presents LIVE VECTOR, an exhibition by the architect João Diniz, who brings architecture + s.culptu / structu.res in steel, composing habitable and artistics spatial ideas.

João Diniz

According to João Diniz, “the rectilinear bars or structural vectors can come to life from the rational and, at the same time, intuitive manipulation of steel, which allows to accomplish both playful and imaginary sculptures, as well as real and enduring buildings”.

Gerdau Steel

The sculptures made in Gerdau steel were conceived in experimental and gestural form, responding to polyhedral geometries, that provide the stabilization of the volumes defined by their edges.

The straight line is the natural and direct connection between two locations, being able to form a stable plot of articulated intentions.

The Live Vector is born in the harmony of the projected and constructed web, revealing the flow of invisible forces through the organizing geometry.

The synthetic trace, the main cell of the composition, is the seed of the figure that reveals volume and proposes the space that rethinks emptiness.

An active absence penetrates the vacuum, connecting its hollows with a magnetic idea that is
at the same time, the text and the drawing of thought.

In the environment generated by experimental risks the polyglot language of connections is born, which conjugate a polyphonic mathematical and spatial syntax.

Gravity lands by means of conductive pathways, potentiating a solidary community of
points, which cease to be abstract when realizing the resulting structure.

The shadow describes the moving arc of contours in a dynamic locution that walks with the
sources of light along the time continuum.

The resulting solid is like a crystal with its livable transparency in which unoccupied positions
are as dense as a stable and salubrious liquid.

Flight is the air route on which the imagined goal is drawn, subject to the solid changes of air and of the sights.

The look line is also a directed intention of seeking and perceiving, through a special focus, confirming a possible resulting unity.

When a comet passes or a figure is sketched, we get the abstract idea of linear trajectories, which only chaos or precision can project, indicating an orbit full of charms and risks.

In the constellations, as in the drawings, hypothetical figures conform that recite
mythologies culturally sustained by centuries of observation and indifference.

The active repose of the rigid compositional bars promotes in the polyhedral reticule the multiple expression of a multifaceted being.

When linear dynamics land, the integration between soil and air is understood, stating that the earth and the cosmic attract each other.
