Artists or Aliens? The Utah monolith was a 3m tall metal pillar that stood in a red sandstone slot canyon in northern San Juan County, Utah. Its appearance was mysterious, and its disappearance completely sudden.
Monoliths are rumoured to be machines built by an unseen extra-terrestrial species, and though comparisons are quickly drawn to the fictional monoliths of film auteur Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey,” we can safely say this real-life monolith was not the work of aliens. We still don’t know who made the tall, metal rectangle or why they stuck it among the red rocks, but we humans are clearly capable of building rectangular pieces of art too.
Following the success of a sold-out first series, LAAT’s 2nd collection introduces a homeware collection called “Monolith”. In this series of geometric homeware pieces, we sculpted a series of abstract decorative pieces from construction wastage to create the illusion of precious stones using primarily four Materials: Mirrors, Steel, and Marble & Concrete. Our aim? To find a new way to present broken and unwanted pieces as precious and valuable.
We refined the pieces, keeping the materials pure and shaped them as sculptural artworks. In the current/near future, we believe that wastage materials can be harvested just like how we’ve been harvesting natural materials.
