in Public Art
Arc of Triumph, Rome
The installation project “Arc of Triumph” is a study for a public installation designed for the cities of Rome and Brussels. The Arc is square-based, with a cellular structure created by linking recycled paper tubes with metal screws and bars.
A fluid, curving, internal gesture creates a hollow cave within the installation’s modular and sustainable paper tube structure. The varying heights of the tubes modulate light and produce dynamic optical effects. The cave inside the arc includes a top oculus, reminiscent of the Roman Pantheon.
With its dynamic visual perspective, made by the many tubes that compose the installation, “Arc of Triumph” symbolizes the liquid state of power in the modern world.
