Lars Levi developed his own techniques with metals. His scientific background (medical doctor, neuroscientist, engineer) supports a very technical approach on the multiple characteristics of materials. He manages to connect this abstract virtue with deep emotional references to the existence of matter, ideas, progress and evolution in a sense of development itself.
Especially metals surround us in our living world. We often associate characteristics like cold, hard, dead and rigid with metals. But they are so much more. Blood cells use iron to transport oxygen, many cells need different metals to catalyze important reactions and colors in nature are often the result of the expression of metal derivates. Without metals life on earth wouldn't be possible and a lot less colorful.
