Vladimir Semenovich Antoshchenkov - representative of the present Leningrad intelligentsia. He is an architect, a teacher of SPSUACE, a sculptor, a graphic artist and a musician who is passionate about playing the recorder. But Vladimir Antoschenkov is known, first of all, as the leading architectural photographer of Leningrad - Petersburg, on whose account more than ten albums.
Associate Professor of Urban Planning, a connoisseur of geometric forms, for his students, Vladimir Antoshchenko developed a special course "Architectural Analysis". His passion for graphic editors and the morphology of geometric figures led him to the creation of spatial computer compositions and sculptures based on them, which will become exhibits of the Cube Metamorphoses exhibition in Erarta.
The cube is the geometric figure number one. If you ask any person to name any geometric body, then, most likely, a cube will be mentioned. Classic children’s toy - cubes. The volume of various substances and materials is measured in cubic meters. If the cube is stretched in one or two directions, then a parallelepiped will turn out, and its role cannot be overestimated.
It is very likely that most of the planet’s population lives and functions inside parallelepipeds.
Cubes can be transformed. They can not only stretch, but also bend, twist, warp, transform with the help of Boolean operations (union, subtraction, intersection), etc. from geometric bodies.
These results may be of aesthetic value. They are used in architecture, design and exist as independent art objects. In the latter case, they can be represented as planar images or as three-dimensional formations. Of course, the positive artistic effect will depend on the use of color, texture, lighting.
