Making Triangles, a sculpture!

"Making triangles" is the first sculpture of our recent series of works (that we use to call "living-structures"). It is an aluminium sculpture of 70x70x30cm, realized in 2012.

The first image appearing readable is an equilateral triangle from which, shortly after, becomes noticeable the speed control and a connection of twisted intertwined mechanisms. Approaching more appear more evident a pipes system and some elements that would suggest a living being: an eye, a mouth and two arms, but still remains a mechanism and, as such, seems to have a function and perhaps an operator. This "living structure" recalls the first creation, in a creative sense, in terms of production and construction; recalls the human potential for growth and creation. The large triangle made to generate something smaller, and it does thanks to the fluid passing through it. This fluid does not, however, come from the outside, but by the same mechanism, it is the lifeblood that flows in the pipes. The reality is self-powered, the man shape itself. It should be added that the equilateral triangle, moreover, is harmony and proportion, and in a sense we have an harmonic system as such and in its parts, with the ability to create. 

A "Red" version of this sculpture was presented at ArtYou - Urban Art Basel 2012, and this new one will be presented at the Grafik13 in Zürich (22-24 of march 2013).

It 'a long time that we do not publish something new here on our blog, and fortunately this is due to the fact that we are working and we have not much free time. However, we are preparing so much material and so many projects that we will realize soon. :-)

The painting you see in the big picture above is named "Undercontrol", we realized it in august 2012 in a pedestrian underpass in Monte Carasso (CH), under the highway, in the context of a project proposed by the Urbanova association.
At the same project were involved also BigTato, PlusPower, Panho, Zeta, Rysk and Irons.

About this painting and its concept we can say that: Everyone moves, since he was born, on roads, means, thoughts and planets that feels as if they had always been here as they are now and as if they always belonged to him.
