Palieter’s art works are an interesting combination of old-world and new-world technology. He uses computer software to workout the design of his ideas then materializes the work using CNC technologies. Along the way his creative process will revert to traditional blacksmithing techniques for the final execution of the work. The result is an intriguing 3D aesthetic that combines solid steel with the appearance of an ephemeral lightness. Palieter’s artworks look as whimsically placed in the environment as a leaf fallen from a tree, but upon further investigation the viewer will ironically come to realize they are quite heavy, solid and stable.
