While in University, studying object design, Arnd was particularly enthralled by his study of layers and depth resulting of common geometric forms. He studied ornaments and researched how light and transparency could provide additional depth. Arnd based this work on a series of circles, each related in size to each other. He used an acrylic sheet, designed a path along these circular sections and created fields he would later cut out. He prepared five sheets; each based on the same circular pattern but with different sections marked out for removal. He manually cut out the redundant parts with a jigsaw. Precision was key to achieve the perfect overlay of patters. Placing and turning the individual sheets in front of each other allows for a seemingly never-ending variety of new patterns and changing opacity. The resulting artwork very much resembles a frozen river with its enclosed bubbles of air, hence it’s title. With this work, Arnd invites the observer to not only look at an artwork but to engage in the creative process by rearranging the layers. Arnd regularly uses this idea of variable and active art. He considers that everything is in a constant motion and nothing really static. He likes the idea that, in making this kind of dynamic art, art could reflect the momentum of what we see, feel, live and do.
