vector construction

The always stunning Colossal features a beautiful wire mesh project of artist Edoardo Tresoldi, which recreates the frame—as suggested by the archaeological evidence—of an early church once located at this site in Puglia.
Though the structure appears rather gossamer, it is quite substantial and hosts the different architectural elements that would have supported the original building. Though in our minds’ eye, the tragic loss of the historic heritage in places like Palmyra at the brutal hands of the Cosplay Caliphate is cemented already as exquisite ruins and Tresoldi’s architecture, though true to form, is more inspired and interpretive rather than memorial, perhaps his talent could be deployed to showcase some of the other scars of warfare that weren’t captured in the spotlight of mindless infamy. Be sure to visit the artist’s profile at the link up top to see some more of his signature installations.
