These Stunning Human Sculptures Disappear When You Look at Them From Certain Angles

By Madeleine Muzdakis on October 29, 2020


Sculptor Julian Voss-Andreae wants viewers of his work to question the paradigms which have long been taken for granted. Specifically, the renowned artist wants to upend the conventions of Newtonian physics, which see the world as a collection of discrete objects acted upon by forces. With a graduate degree in quantum physics, Voss-Andreae uses sculpture to prove the fundamental integration of the universe. From certain angles, his figural sculptures disappear into the environment around them—proving humans cannot separate ourselves from nature.

특정 각도에서 보면 사라지는 놀라운 휴먼 조각상들


   조각가 줄리안 보스 앤드레는 그의 작품의 애호가들이 오랫동안 당연하게 여겨져 온 패러다임에 의문을 제기하기싶어한다. 구체적으로, 이 유명한 예술가는 세계를 힘에 의해 작용하는 이산 물체의 집합체로 보는 뉴턴 물리학의 관습을 강화하기를 원한다. 양자물리학 석사학위를 받은 보스-안드레는 조각을 이용해 우주의 근본적인 통합을 증명한다. 어떤 각도에서 보면, 그의 조각품들은 그들 주위의 환경 속으로 사라진다. 즉, 인간을 증명하는 것은 자연으로부터 우리를 분리시킬 수 없다.



양자역학은 물질 이론을 가정한다. – 천체와 힘이 함께 작용하여 전 우주를 건설한다. 보스-안드레아의 조각품들은 그의 작품을 보는 사람들의 마음에 이러한 이론을 가져다 준다. 그의 실물보다 큰 인간의 "양자" 형상은 평행하게 잘린 시트에서 얼굴, 팔, 다리를 드러낼 수 있도록 제작되었다. 사라진 조각품들은 측면에서 단단하게 보이지만, 작품 주위로 이동하면서 파도로 부서진다. 얇은 금속판들 사이에서 빛 조각들이 나타나면서, 결국 그 조각상은 더 이상 보이지 않게 된다. 그것은 완전히 얇은 공기로 분해되는 것처럼 보인다. 작품마다 움직이는 것은 형태가 주변으로 녹아내리면서 '패러다임 이동'의 증거다.

Quantum mechanics postulates theories of matter—atoms and forces work together to construct the entire universe. Voss-Andreae's sculptures bring these theories to the minds of those who view his work. His larger-than-life human “quantum” figures are crafted from parallel sheets cut to reveal faces, arms, and legs. The disappearing sculptures appear solid from the side; however, they fracture into waves as one moves around the work. As slits of light emerge from between the thin sheets of metal, eventually the statue is no longer visible—it appears to completely disintegrate into thin air. Moving around each work is evidence of a “paradigm shift” as the form melts away into its surroundings.


Voss-Andreae's disappearing statues are only one element of his work's engagement with science. He casts bronze sculptures of RNA and DNA and Carbon-60 molecules (known as Buckyballs), as well as stainless-steel antibodies. In a statement, the artist elaborated on what it means to combine art with science, particularly quantum physics. “Contrary to our strongly held prejudices about the workings of the universe, there simply is no ‘reality’ out there that is independent of us,” writes Voss-Andreae. “Similarly, the divide we perceive between us and the rest of our world turns out to be an illusion: Ultimately, we cannot separate ourselves from each other and the rest of the universe, both in a physical sense as well as when it comes to our actions.”


As his disappearing statues retreat into the world around them, so must human consciousness. An integration—emotional and environmental— is necessary to face modern problems such as climate change. Voss-Andreae states, “The lessons of quantum physics offer us a glimpse of a different way of dealing with each other and dealing with our world and I feel it is critical that those embryonic ideas get out into the cultural mainstream.”

Sculptor and physicist Julian Voss-Andreae crafts disappearing sculptures of metal which—as you move around them—melt into the environment.

The human forms are composed of parallel metal sheets cut strategically.

Voss-Andreae explores the paradigms which are classically accepted, and why those paradigms must shift to deal with the problems (and possibilities) of the future.

The artist's other work also draws from scientific concepts, including DNA, RNA, and antibodies.

Voss-Andreae believes quantum physics provides a worldview that is both truthful and needed–all atoms are fully integrated and inseparable. This must be recognized if we are to understand the universe.

The Reader, 2017


Voss-Andreae's “quantum” disappearing statues are all a reminder of the interconnectedness of the universe.
