KEEP CALM AND UPCYCLE ON

OUR STORY

For the science, Vortex has different meanings…For us, more an artistic than a scientific approach, Vortex-X is a web of wipe strips, made with an industrial waste. And for the people perhaps, an ephemeral turbulence in different places.
January 2014 – The project has been launched in the former fabric factory DMC in Mulhouse.

The first installation (Vortex-075) on the area of DMC symbolizes the rebirth of this old factory, witness of the rich textile past of Mulhouse. With the message of recycling, the project-collective around eco-designer Gérard Dumora is preparing a project-tour.
Ephemeral and upcycling – two words that describe the spirit of the Vortex-X.

Ephemeral
Land art, activism or artistic performance, It’s always ephemeral and respect the places that welcomes it.

Upcycling
The transformation from waste to artistic work has as goal to generate attention on reclaiming industrial waste.

The association
With the message of recycling, the project-collective around eco-designer Gérard Dumora is preparing a project-tour. Together with local recycling-players there will be a Vortex-X produced and linked to a public exhibition or event.
Many thanks to Jacob Holm in Soultz, the wipes supplier.

About

Vortex-X – Urban Art

The Vortex-X fits naturally in the sphere of urban art, even if it is distinguished by its three-dimensional approach, and its capacity to be grafted in the heart of urban space. A first thread stretched, between two points, with simple knots, than a second thread, than another one, again… The Vortex-X fills the space and little by little shapes it. From a simple geometrical construction to a complexity due to the multiciplicity, we can see its progression as we weave it. Monuments, buildings, factories, natural spaces, the Vortex-X can fit anywhere, it’s the chosen place, full of memories, that makes the Vortex-X’s wealth. The goal of Vortex-X is to add value to an industrial waste by transforming it into an artistic work and by this way to lead the people to a concrete thought about upcycling.
