Massive Geometric Sculpture Resembles Tsunami of Black Caviar
Designed by a computer, milled by machines and assembled by a team of robots, Federico Díaz's Geometric Death Frequency 141 isn't necessarily the warmest work of art you'll see this year. But it is, nevertheless, quite a lot of fun to behold:
"Beginning on October 23, 2010, MASS MoCA in North Adams Massachusetts, will be showing Fredrico Diaz's 'Geometric Death Frequency—141', a sculpture made from 420,000 black spheres made and assembled by robotics. The final sculpture will measure 20 feet by 50 feet and sit in the courtyard of the museum."
"The installation is precisely crafted from robotics, milling and assembling the entire sculpture sphere by sphere, completely void of any human interaction. Diaz developed this process for building on his own using CAD software and manufacturing techniques along with pure data and algorithms based on particle physics. with this system each sculpture is completely untouched by human hands from concept to materialization."
