The sculpture can resemble an abstract structure, a cloud or a silhouette of a grove on a hilltop. The design transforms an uncertain shape through a regular orthogonal grid. Glossy metal surfaces create a spectacular play of shadow and light. While red lines contrasting with the light surroundings, create an illusion of a two dimensional drawing, only a moving observer notices the three-dimensional character of the structure. Located on the roof of the apartment complex, the sculpture presents a clear iconic orientation point for the neighborhood.
The structure consists of 130 identical segments, each being an orthogonal three dimensional cross made of welded 60x60mm steel beams with square cross-sections. The segments are bolted together and can be re-assembled in various configurations.The structure has been designed to meet the client request upon a sculpture, which positively complements and enforces public space of a newly erected neighborhood.
