DUNA MECANICA


Polyurethane foam and latex paint

Duna Mecanica are three sculptures that replicate sand patterns formed by wind. As dune formation depends on wind dynamics, the shapes of these sculptures are determined by sinusoidal waves that vary in frequency, wavelength and direction. The three shapes have common traits, yet each has a different appearance. The transformations along the crests and gorges produce both soft shadows and sharp edged silhouettes creating an effect of visual reverberation. These works were fabricated with a CNC milling machine that carved the ridges from polyurethane foam.
