Spongia

Bronze, plaster, plastic - variable dimensions - 2016

The starting point is the metal casting of a natural sponge. An absorbent element, the sponge is transformed and frozen in a perennial material: bronze. The relationships are reversed. The upper part is balanced on a plaster column of a certain fragility. Spongia is the result of a working process. The natural sponges serve as a model for the formation of a plastic volume made by 3D technology.
