Cyclic is a new series of fiberglass sculptures, produced for Japanese artist Mariko Mori. Factum Arte has been commissioned to produce the first version of Cyclic and the work of art has been presented at Art Basel 2014 at the Sean Gallery Stand.
Cyclic I is about 220 cm height and weights 110 Kg. It was modeled as a 3D form in Mariko Mori's New York studio, and then routed by Model Porex. It was then sanded and filled in Factum Arte's warehouse and painted with a special holographic paint made by Lechler in Como. Finally Cyclic has been shipped to Switzerland to be exhibited at Art Basel 2014.
