The experience of seeing a rainbow for the first time, or seeing beautiful colorful swirls in a clear stream or placid lake is an unforgettable experience. Thanks to a new intricate coating created in collaboration with Italian masters and experts in paint we have created a Square Wave that astonishingly and vibrantly mimics the effects of a rainbow. Many of our designs have featured deep, rich colors that were certainly impressive, however your new Square Wave Aurora brings color to a whole new level. Placing your Square Wave Aurora in a sliver of light or next to a roaring fire will bring its magnificent colors to light changing and shape shifting as it is affected by the atmosphere around it. This new Square Wave is not just a beautiful sothing sculpture, it is a whole new experience.

An Unforgettable Experience

Square Wave has the advantage of not being any one thing. Square Wave isn't just a work of art, it isn't just a sculpture and it isn't just an interactive tool, it is all of those things together, making interacting with it a profoundly pleasant optical and psychological experience. Square Wave Aurora's optical illusion is grafted directly onto every inch of it's metal frame, as you spin it or your friends and family play with it, it shimmers in the light creating beautiful swirls composed of fiery reds and electric blues. These vibrant colors are sure to light up the eyes and minds of whoever gazes upon it. One might go so far as saying that the experience is almost magical but we like to say that it is unforgettable, experiencing your Square Wave Aurora's bouquet of colors is visually stunning and will leave a lasting impact.

Enthralling, No Matter Where

Square Wave Aurora is unique in its ability to fit in absolutely anywhere due to it's versatile and awe inspiring coating. Your Aurora edition will pick up the depth and movement of the light in any room, morphing into that space and entering into complete harmony with any environment. Much like a chameleon on an emerald green leaf or an barn owl sitting high atop a dusty birch tree, your Square Wave will perch itself elegantly on any table or shelf, picking up the subtle changes of the space it's in. Every Aurora edition is completely unique and accustomed to whatever location it finds itself in due to it's light interactive coating. We love to describe our sculptures as gems, however this is one Square Wave that provides all the fascination and natural beauty of a flawless diamond or shimmering sapphire.

Square Wave Aurora's vibrant coating will act to further these positive effects, it's shimmering colors will help to sooth you, like watching light shimmer on the surface of the water at sunset. The Aurora edition is deeply enthralling, whether you love looking at it for the sake of it or want to use it to help ease yourself into a meditation session. Let it be a teleportation device to a place you love. Imagine those early childhood memories of a breezy summers day or waking up early in the morning after a midnight storm and watching a beautiful rainbow stretch itself across floating water droplets and the dew splashed lawns.

square wave as an art piece

Ivan Black

Ivan was born in London in the early 70's, as a child he was immediately interested in geometry, patterns and problem solving. His school of art is inspired by a very uniquely British tradition of combining the arts with other disciplines such as science and mathematics. This early fascination lead him to eventually begin designing and presenting his creations as sculptures and works of art at various museums and galleries. His work has been exhibited at galleries and sculpture parks worldwide including the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, The Cass Foundation, Flowers East, Sculpture by the Sea Australia, Interart Sculpture Park Netherlands, Palmyra Sculpture Centre Mallorca, Kinetica museum and the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden. His works have also been featured at the Adobe headquarters and Nobu Hotel in London!

Unpredictable Illusions

Square Wave is made up of 24 carefully intertwined metal rods which curve and warp at their own whim. One simple twist of a hand can bring the structure to life. The repetition of these rods is precisely calibrated to create complex fluid motion, nature does the exact same in the bone structures of every living thing. Each and every Square Wave is crafted and assembled by hand, each metal rod connected to the next by hand. The attention to detail and craftsmanship in each Square Wave elevates it to a work of art.
