Digital data was used to create Illumination’s CNC-mill female EPS molds, making several sculpture segments. The interior and exterior FRP skins of these segments were joined with bulkheads. Assembly was by incorporating a post-tensioned assembly system. The surface finish was by applying Italian veneer plaster, or “marmorino.”

K&A Scope:

From 3-D digital data provided by the artist, design fabrication method, engineer and manufacture sculpture for on-site assembly, disassembly, and reassembly indefinitely. Surface finish by post-applied veneer plaster.


Artist: Michael Somoroff
