Impossible towers

Year: 2016
TTechniques: lost-wax casting, patina
Materials: copper, marble

The IMPOSSIBLE TOWERS are a small series of copper structures that refer to the aesthetics of the towers, usually of considerable size and massive structures, used for different but defensive functions, from fortification to insulation. Here proposals in formal antithesis, made in very small dimensions, from a maximum of 10 cm in height to a minimum of 6 cm, created with strips of copper assembled without input material, favoring the fusion of the same, to accentuate the material finish and favor the oxidation of the undercuts generated through the process. The structure obtained is anchored to marble slabs with intense colors. Imagined and made without access points to encourage the comparison of the observer to evoke claustrophobia in the possibility of inhabiting them.
