Il progetto in vetrina:

Untitled – für Ottmar, 2017, copper 30 x 30 x 7 cm, (Edition of 50)

4 Sculptures from an Edition of 50 that I dedicated to one of my former Professors, Ottmar Hörl. A Master of multiples. Copper replicas of slightly squeezed empty upright standing Maxi Single Vinyl Record Covers. The natural process of patination I partly accelerated with Acid.
