" Human Element is a project that explores the influence material has on human condition and how our consciousness is derived from our relationship with materials.By using cement and anchoring forms to stone, the Designer wants to create a sense of familiarity and comfort.
Through the manipulation of form, balance and texture, Collin Velkoff's sculptures convey a feeling of unease and tension which communicates our relationship with materials and our dependency on the environment.For these sculptures, Collin developed a sand casting technique that allows him to cast unique cement forms onto organic stone forms buried beneath the sand. After the cement cures the two materials are locked together and the object is then dug out by hand.Stones are selected from Nature and construction sites, these stones dictate the shape, color and forms on the cement pieces that will cast onto the stones. Thus, no two pieces will ever be the same. "
