The sculpture’s body is made in several phases. Constructive parts of the sculpture are shaped with stainless steel wires and profiles, welded, chrome-plated, or plasticized, depending on the agreement. After this first phase of skeleton making, we start to work with UV-resistant acrylic glass or polycarbonate. The sculpture is built by joining and bending previously prepared plastic segments.
The combination of colors and shapes comes to the fore making this technique alive and always different.
Due to the work in layers and the use of light, the sculpture has two faces. One is when the light is off, and then we only see one look, texture, and color on the very surface of the sculpture. When the light comes on, you get a broader picture of the form, its depth, overlaps, color mixing, etc.
The stainless steel base is mounted on a concrete foundation. There is also an option for this sculpture to be solar-powered, in both cases, it has an LED lighting system inside.
