Supported by Christopher Grimes Projects, large-scale artistic and architectural projects promoter organization, the artist Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle (Madrid, 1961) completed a site-specific installation at the Texas A&M College of Engineering at to inaugurate the new program of art in said institution.

Ph: Texas A&M College of Engineering

Named Stellar Interloper (Silver Surfer), the artist explained that the installation aims to think over the intersection points between art and education, on the one hand, and to promote the multidisciplinary development that the Texas A&M College of Engineering seeks to deepen with it’s new art program.

Inspired, precisely, in fluid dynamics of liquids and gas, vortex mechanics and forces of tension and comprehension, the installation - a large sculpture - adopts aesthetic resources of aeronautical design, contemplating - and not limiting -, thus, to all areas of study and research.

As explained from Christopher Grimes Projects, the development of the piece exhibited at the North American institution began with a subtle allusion to the concept of understanding and flow: " The parabolic profile of a theoretical bow wave is made three-dimensional, replicating itself three times, and undergoing a twisted rotation on its vertical axis to create a complex double torus, mirrored vertically to suggest an infinite flow from top to bottom and bottom to top." Also, the organization declared that the key to apprehend the work of Manglano-Ovalle is through amazement and contemplation, always located from the thought and scrutiny of those who are dedicated to research.

Once again, Christopher Grimes Projects -organization that everyone related in one way or another to art should follow closely- calls a great artist for the creative intervention of a space.
