Fibonacci graffiti sculpture

Sculpture made by PVC, size 115x51x25 cm.
Exposed at Baron Gallery, Gastown Vancouver during Winter Olympics games of 2010.

I created this sculpture during a period in which I was pas-
sionately involved with readings concerning Sacred Geome-
try. I mainly took inspiration from Fibonacci’s spirals. Whi-
le not actually following the specific mathematical concept
proposed by Fibonacci, my purpose was to integrate some
intersecting spirals with my sculpture.

I utilized a professional 3D design program to create this
project. Having attended the Venetian Design University, this
projecting technique is derived from my formal university edu-
cation. In fact, I use the same program that I have employed
to design products for the production of my sculptures. This
software allows me to have a 3D view of the sculpture and,
at the same time, virtually cut out all the different surfaces of
my sculpture and consider them on a 2D plane. In this way,
I can perfectly understand shapes and sizes of any material
that I choose to build my sculpture. Subsequently, I cut the
PVC plates and assemble them together. The penultimate
step involves coating the PVC surface with a polyester layer
to mask imperfections resulting from the building process
and to impart singularity to the structure, rather than a colla-
ge of components. Finally, the sculpture is filled with polyu-
rethane to make it structurally sound.
