The ultra-thin, self-supporting structure is made from 5,312 structure stripes, with each stripe made from 1/8th-inch powder-coated aluminum. It’s commissioned by Epazote Sa. Vladislav Sludskiy and if you look closely into the design you’ll notice it’s multilayered, made of curves that support one another resulting in sculpture’s hight.
