A majority of things are taken at face value, which in turn, are disregarded and pushed
aside. The history, the struggles, and the impact these things have had throughout the existence
of humanity are purposefully overlooked. It is important to acknowledge and remember these

“As artists, we must push the limitations of technique, media, and message – innovating, always — if we are to engage viewers on multiple levels. Wonder junkies will delight in Noah Brock’s stunning sculptural work “Vitruvian Reflexion,” the winner of this year’s competition. While appearing to bend the laws of physics and awe with its balance of strength and vulnerability, both the reflexion and the reflection captivate the viewer from the approach. But, the viewer must enter and engage to complete Brock’s vision. Interacting with this masterwork is truly an immersive experience, which ignites curiosity – and that is exactly where art must be today.”
Noah Z. Brock is a sculpture artist who works primarily with metal.
“My work is based in mathematics in an attempt to describe the world around us. This concept is manifested in sculptural form to high precision, but often represents seemingly imprecise organic shapes. This clash of structure and nature is frequently perceived as a juxtaposition, but in reality, one is used to describe the other. Calculated geometry can often times show us another perspective on the natural world.”
I utilize electronic media to create moments that defy time and space, moments which make the everyday world foreign and exciting again. Video is comprised of pixels that I am able to manipulate as matter no different from a painter or sculptor with their respective materials, and with these pixels I disrupt perceptions of linear time. Through visual and aural cues, I have the ability to take the viewer into virtual headspaces that feel as real as they are intangible. I am not interested in answers, but rather in the mystery to be defined by each individual who encounters the work.

“I am intrigued by the unusual, the hidden, the mysterious, the forgotten, and ultimately, the undiscovered. The intricacy of the mind, the mystery of the soul, and how these two concepts harmonize is of interest to me. My images search to create a space where the obscurity and undiscovered beauty of both ideas coexist. I construct these spaces with discarded and/or altered man-made materials. Botanicals or natural earth elements are juxtaposed within the scene. The combination of materials and the layering of the scene silently comments on the complexity and symmetry of both the mind and the soul. It secretly reflects energy alignment within self and worldly influence causing transformation to the character.”
