Gravity and Grace
Artist: Shinji Omaki Atelier Type: Temporary installation Location: Nagoya, Japan Year: 2016 This 7 meters height monument was designed for the Aichi Triennale 2016 in the Toyohashi Art Theater. Our initial idea was a vase shape made of 3 mm steel layer with the addition of delicate patterns of flower lace. In order to have stability, we selected vierendeel frame system with flat bars with 3 mm x 50 mm. Combining the use of flat frames and steel plates we could get horizontal stability to keep the vase shape.
