  • In here we have a set of sculptures and their design/building process, ...They were made to be exhibited at the annual ART4MORE exhibition in Athens Greece.  The exhibition is organized by "ΕΔΡΑ", a non profit organization that promotes mental health awereness.  Black background photos by FILE Photography.

    -In the city of patience, passion became home, and the tenant now, perfectly prepared, to be late, for everything.

    Translated from the following Greek original:

    -Στη πόλη της υπομονής, το πάθος έγινε σπίτι, και ο ένοικος πια, τέλεια προετοιμασμένος, για να αργήσει, σε όλα.
    Few things still came easy.  Other things still came hard.
    No matter how far he ran, passion was always a comfortable place to hide.  … And when passion feels betrayed, things start to move.  But new mechanisms only bring about the need for a newer and faster model… perhaps another transformation... and who knows what that may bring.
  • Some of the reference borrowed from the internets.
  • Here's a sample of Snailstorming!
  • A quick sketch on my drawing tablet to get things started and have the design aproved by the curator.
  • Rough drafts of the object.
  • With the concept figured out on paper, I've now started designing and building in 3d.
  • Rooooaaaaar!!!  The shell has an eye instead of a spiral.... It's an angry little eye.
  • Shell's almost done... Starting to figure out the snails body shape.
  • Here is the snail body volume mockup looking a bit slugish without the shell... excusse the pun.
  • The snail body will be made from small size junk I've collected over the past 30yrs or so.

  • Here it is at the exhibit.  The shell was masked a few times to be sprayed with acrylics.  If I sell it, I'll mold it, then I'll cast it out of resin and paint it again!
  • Follow the Magic Box
  • "Follow the Magic Box"
    -When he was a little child, he had, a magic box.  Now the little magic box, has in it, a magic child.
    Few things came easy.  Other things came hard.  
    Would hard things transform by just doing the easy things well?
    He practised it, he studied it,  worshiped it and followed it all the way to his future.  Many homes later… Still saturated by the box, or maybe the other way around.  Suddenly, there was no way back and no mechanism to move forward.
  • A quick sketch before starting to build/design the second model exhibited at the ART4MORE.
  • Cut-offs, shavings and tests from small 3D projects (gathered on and off over a period of 15yrs) will dress this sculpture.  It's the same pallet/texture as the snail, at a different scale.
  •           The mdf box was cut and modified several times, until I was satisfied with the result.
  • This one is called "Ακολούθα το Μαγικό Κουτί" ("Follow the Magic Box") and was the first one made in this series.  Its snail brother is actually the sequell and represents its visual solution.  You can take a look at similar works in the FRAGMENTATION project.  Photo by FILE Photography.
