workshops, Florence 12 2005, final-result

basic info


results half way: day 1 : day 2
final result: pics : animated

From the ground floor, the final 3D installation looks like an architectural maquette. Illegible, mysterious, fascinating, unreadable. Only from the top floor the lettering can be read. 'informe', meaning 'without form' in Italian, and referring to the English verb 'inform'. More than 300 square meters of Marazzi tiles have been used to create the 2x1x6 meters typographic piece. All to be removed again, just existing for a short moment, temporary, for a good time.
