DESCRIPTION

Copper engraver William Hogarth drafted his art theory treatise titled “An Analysis of Beauty” in 1753. The text, dedicated to the beauty of curved lines on surfaces and in space, was fully in the spirit of the Rococo style, the curves of which he absolutized as “lines of beauty”.

The ornamentation of the Alpha Series takes a closer look at these lines of beauty in relation to their empirical examination and in their transformation from something archaic into delicacy and gracefulness. Hogarth describes beauty as a composed intricacy of forms that lures the eye and the spirit to the hunt.

The digitally designed guilloche-like structure was made using a fine sandblasting technique combined with the engraved or gilded lines of the craftsperson. The pattern portrays the mutual interdependence of digital and analog crafts and crystallizes the curved line, the “line of beauty”, in absoluteness, the living movement of the hand.
