Wings - Sculpture installation on Governors Island.
"Wings" is a mathematical expression of beauty.
The design has been developed from a computational process driven by a custom developed algorithm.
The intriguing shape has been conceptualized with two thoughts in mind: sparking curiosity and enhance interactivity.
The repetitive path produces a clean design and a pleasant visual that invites the visitor to get closer to the piece. This, paired with the asymmetry introduced by the mirrored geometry game, makes the sculpture intriguing and worth exploring.
The sculpture designed by Alfonso Oliva has been built in collaboration with Computational Designer Nidhi Sekhar. "Wings" has been on show on Governors Island during the Figment festival on June 3rd and 4th 2017.
