inflatables by jeremy thomas

These are sculptures I had never ever see before. Totally awesome.

At what temperature is steel mouldable like clay? For Jeremy Thomas, 1,500 degrees are enough, along with a paradox which is just as hot: metal can be moulded with a gust of air. In his forge just outside Santa Fe, in Mexico, Thomas produces steel installations with a very strange technique: by injecting pressurised air into incandescent metal shapes, previously assembled with a welder. Thus the cold and industrial steel which we are accustomed to seeing takes on warm, organic forms, filled with life, where everyone can see different outlines and reflections amid the folds, ridges and creases.
