Art Description

Sculpture: Clay, Plaster, Plastic and Acrylic on Wood and Other.

My robot is made up of elements of buildings. We can recognize decorative architectural elements on the figure. We can often feel angels, female faces, lions, etc., observing us from the facades of buildings. My figure’s facial features are not typically “robot-like”, because it has a face that we could see on the building facades.
It can protect buildings from destruction (see the title, “Street Fighter”). It also aims to protect the era and its values, uniting these with the progressive values that transgress the ages. The defining street views and emblematic buildings come from an innovative era, the results of the Industrial Revolution. This era resembles our digital/virtual revolution, in which robots and automation play an important role.
The figure is made mostly from EPS (expondent polystyrene), which is traditionally used for insulation of building facades. It’s a characteristically long-lasting and dense material. A figure created from this material, however, is quite fragile. To prevent damage, a layer of two-component resin is applied to coat the surface of the figure. This layer protects against the sun, high temperature, and rain, so it aids in creating a figure that can be exhibited and stored outdoors. As the figure is not heavy, it is easily transported.
