"when they came...", 2015
dimension variable, CNC-cut foam covered with stucco and marble-vinyl tiles
When They came... is composed of four CNC-cut foams covered in stucco and vinyl tiles with Carrara marble motif. These sculptural elements refer to fragments of ruins, yet the fracturing along their edges is oddly regular.
I obtained this result by misaligning the images to form a panorama on the iPhone. I then traced the fragmented image on Illustrator and used the CNC-machine to carve into the 2" thick foams.
