Plastic sculpture forms are determined by the freeform principle. When they are formed with a very simple physical process, such as pouring melted plastic into cold water, complex forms and structures form spontaneously. This is a process like the pouring of melted tin into cold water on the eve of the solstice in order to see the future. It is a natural process of creating forms, that is why it is so easy to perceive very organic forms, lines and patterns which can be encountered in nature. In nature, these spontaneous forming processes are further impacted by evolution, selecting out the models which work. A similar strategy is simulated in the formation of plastic sculpture, where the best object samples were selected out and paired over four generations (20102013).
