The Long Drop

 Standing high on a ladder, a point is defined where it all begins. The substance flows like lava and marks a permanent path.

The long drop is a poly-concrete table, cast in a wooden chute that resembles a roller-coaster. Buckets of fluid material are poured down and set rock-hard. When it is filled, the chute is dismantled leaving a table that is forever married with its pouring channel spiralling up through the air. Concrete drips and spills are frozen in the moment.

The archetype says that product follows process. The idea for The Long Drop arose when we were looking for a way to merge the moment of creation with the final product. The result is an embodiment of a single gesture, a table that would always be connected to the pouring channel from which it derived.

Our aim is to capture the moment when an object starts to exists. The moment between nothing and something. In our earlier works the object and process are separate parts. The idea for The Long Drop arose when we were looking for a way to merge the moment of creation with the final product. The result is an embodiment of a single gesture, a table that is always connected to the pouring channel from which it derived.
