Charles Trevelyan, Between the Lines
Carpenters Workshop Gallery in Paris, France
Australian designer Charles Trevelyan initially studied materials engineering, majoring in physics and chemistry. This led him to explore the properties of ceramics, glass, plastics and composites. He completed this with a year at the Beaux-Arts where he learned sculpture, 3D design, and graphics. He gained an understanding of the structure of objects, the way they are built, how they work. This has proven useful for putting together a project. "I don't use it consciously but it is likely that my scientific background influences my work." Indeed, his strongly symbolic projects are the fruit of reflections on the mathematical principle: observation + inspiration = solution.
