Salvaged rubber tires get a surreal second life in Project Pneumàtic, a sculptural urban intervention from street artists Octavi Serra, Iago Buceta, and Mateu Targa. The installations were created by chopping up 40 used tires with a circular saw, and attaching the pieces to walls and sidewalks in a sequence that creates the illusion of sinking into the brown rock.
“The project is based on continuity and repetition,” Serra tells The Creators Project. They experimented with different cuts and positions of tires, provided by the Ús Barcelona Street Art Festival, before settling on an arrangement inspired by the sequence of frames in film. “Once we started working, the visual effect that emerged from the tires caught our attention, since one could believe they were going beyond the formal limits of walls and urban architecture.”
