THE ART AND DESIGN OF ARCHITECT ROBERT OBIER

DIMENSIONAL ART

3- 

THE STUFF OF DREAMS

 Design is the Art of Storyttelling. Through stories we give meaning and context to this  journey we all share. My cause is to create an art that inspires meaning and speaks of some untold story - some distant time - some mysterious place - some unknown tomorrow.  This is what I call, “The Stuff of Dreams”.

From creation through completion the dichotomy of ‘handmade’ and ‘computer generated’ informs the development and execution of the work.

The work explores the intersections and obscures the boundaries between architecture, industrial design and art. Each piece is as much a realization of an abstract design concept as it is a unique work of three-dimensional art. The construction of the artwork employs a variety of techniques; from traditional woodworking to advanced rapid prototyping such as, 3-D modeling, 3-D printing and computer aided machine work.

The provocative design will leverage the power of an iconic symbol (the offshore drilling platform) and imbue it with new meaning - raising public awareness and putting a "face" on the critical partnerships that are essential to the cause of saving Louisiana's threatened coastal wetlands.
