The Simple Expression of Complex Thought

Clare Taylor is a recent graduate from Camberwell College of Art. She frequently likes to tell people that she's from Greenland. This is not true.

Mario Merz was an influential figure of the arte povera movement, like Jannis Kounellis, who I also wrote about quite recently. Merz’s igloos are perhaps his most iconic pieces, referencing some kind of pre-industrial society that has been lost. The artist was fascinated by the Fibonacci sequence and its occurrence within nature, something which appears frequently throughout his work.
