Hypnotic Liquid Metal Sculpture

Melter 3D, an impressive liquid metallic sculptural animation by Takeshi Murata at Frieze New York 2014.

Presented as a single object under controlled lighting, Melter 3D by Takeshi Murata is a metallic sphere that produces the illusion of perpetual liquid flow across its surface. Combining Murata’s recent three-dimensional rendering (OM Rider, 2013) with his ongoing series of animations of hypnotic liquidity (Melter 1, 1997; Melter 2, 2003), Melter 3D blends Murata’s unique animation aesthetic with classical sculpture, creating an entirely new experience of animation in the round.
