The artwork takes form as the digital manipulation of an ortogonal grid or an accident, emerging from the ground and creating a scenic wireframe structure that releases the sidewalk for people’s daily movements. The resulting space as multiple possibilities of use, from presentations to performances, concerts, etc. The colour and lightness of the structure draws a dynamic and morphological image that invites people to approach and develop a closer relationship with this piece.
