BIBAFOE

This sculpture features the characteristic ‘blob’ that the artist often uses on a smaller scale. The entire oeuvre is permeated with contrasts between conventional architectural models (boxes) and virtual designs (blobs) but here the artist chooses a third way, opting for a synthesis of both. This results in forms that are removed from their virtual space and transformed back into a graphic abstraction, giving rise to a dynamic drawing that harks back to traditional graphic techniques whilst also referencing contemporary graffiti and digital design. The ultimate aim was to make the facade area more attractive and transform it into a landmark. The design was mounted on the facade of the tower where mounting points were provided at strategic places. The sheets of weather-resistant Corten steel, most of which had been supplied pre-assembled, were then screwed into place.
