DYNAMIC STRUCTURES ∙ From Concept to Real Space

 

The project has to do with the creation of large scale sculptures, agents of concepts in space. Initially, the general principles governing the structures are laid down. Subsequently, the rationale behind- and the compositional process adopted for each and every work is analyzed.

Taking a concept as a starting point, issues of structure are explored, while the initial stimulus and origins that informed the genesis of the structure are presented. Besides, the process of creation starting from the original idea and the digital representation of the installation through to its actual realization are detailed.

Lastly, the proper surroundings where the structure is to be incorporated are examined in line with the specific reasoning behind each work. Thus, the question of how to intervene in public space is raised.
