Details: Taking cues from hi-tech lighting and the softer edged curved forms of the 70's countered with sharp turns and pointed moments associated with the eighties, Farias envisions a sinuous mantis form in a striking Yves Klein inspired blue.  Cable details reference the tansegrity concerns of Snelson and the conductivity needs of it's plastic cousin, the halogen desk lamp.
But beyond the intriguing details is an overriding gestural energy conveyed by forms that swoop through space, double back, then bank in opposing directions like a downhill skier.
Carefully distributed mass with soft edged contours provide a windswept gesture that conveys a dynamism unconstrained by the obsessive cable formulations and splitting forms.  Farias does not allow his composition to get bogged down with his engineering conceits.   Instead, he cleverly deploys asymmetrical counter weights to support cantilevered extrusions of sloping and tapered forms that flower in opposed directions, and ultimately deliver a graceful demonstration of kinetic equilibrium.
