Ars Qubica by Cristóbal Vila

Octavian C. on

The approach of Cristóbal Vila in the 3D animated short film Ars Qubica is to convey the presence of geometry and mathematics in art. This figure of a cube as a guide, a geometric figure which, when cut by a plane, can lead used a square, a triangle, a non-regular pentagon or hexagon.

From Constructivism to Suprematism, in Ars Qubica we find several works belonging to two avant-garde movements that appeared in Russia at the beginning of the 20th century

And which are the differences between the two movements? The truth is that they have many points in common and most artists moved between both ones. But one could sum it up by saying that for Constructivism art has a social purpose and the artist must subordinate his freedom to achieve the common good. Suprematism also admits the ethical purpose but does not renounce the creative freedom of the artist. It defends that art is a more personal experience than a public one, no matter how universal its application may be.
