Edoardo Tresoldi is an Italian sculptor. He makes near-transparent sculptures using wire mesh, and often positions them in public places. Using his signature wire mesh material, Tresoldi has sculpts landscapes of monumental architectural objects that engage with natural elements. Classical typologies — like colossal columns and dramatic domes — interact with modernist geometries, blending two worlds that exist in both harmony and contrast.

Jaume Plensa produces monumental sculptures in steel, glass, marble, polyester resin, concrete, and bronze. He is best known for his Crown Fountain in Chicago’s Millenium Park, two 50-foot-high glass towers set amidst a pool of water, which play giant video portraits of Chicago residents that periodically purse their lips and spout water into the pool.

Predominantly producing figurative sculpture, Plensa has created larger-than-life-sized heads constructed of fine, stainless-steel wire mesh so that their surrounding environments are visible through the works, and bronze figures cast from his own body.

ELASTIC WEB INSTALLATION BY NUMEN

Tube is a new installation concept constructed of stitched safety nets which assume a form of a closed hose that pulsates and oscillates in the longitudinal section.

The object is suspended from surrounding surfaces with numerous elastic strings, channelling a giant convulsing centipede. Such dispersed structural support enables even distribution of forces and allows the structure to feel soft and fully transparent as it transcends the architectural void, causing the sensation of free floating for the person inside.

The orthogonal scheme of host-space is fractured by irregular diagonals and oblique perspectives created by the jagged progression of the tube. The human crawler within experiences architectural environment from unexpected, surreal angles as he or she moves through the mesh artery which supports the body but lets the eyes fly and explore, resembling a strange case of “bird-worm” amalgamation. Tube’s irregular geometry defined by varying disposition of support strings makes it a perfect parasite.
