The unique approach of Eduard Locota towards art, embrace the permeability between art and function. An unique lamp that is as much sculpture as it is design.
By using coal as a manufacturing material, Eduard Locota is predicting a feasible future for coal, but not as one of the world’s leading combustibles.
If we analyzing the past of the material: its transformation from a plant into a rock, and currently into the fuel; we can try to predict the new and complex future of coal and similar fossil-fuel.
The artist is reinterpreting the purpose of fossil fuel, we actually go beyond recycling, towards an active transformation of the material.
As always, the medium remain in focus; a mix of coal, resin and light.
