Translucent Figurative Sculpture Blends Into Horizon As Metaphor About Climate Change #ArtTuesday

vi My Modern Met

Melting against sky and sea, Alessandra Rossi‘s translucent Untitled Coral is camouflaged against the Australian landscape. This touching sculpture of a girl with downcast eyes was created for the Sculpture by the Sea festival. This well-regarded festival, now in its twentieth year, displays over 100 sculptures along the Australian coastline from Bondi to Tamarama. Rossi, an Italian artist now based in Freemantle, created this stunning artwork that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is significant.

Using 3D printing technology to create the figure from translucent acrylic material, Rossi’s piece drains of its color as it moves upward. At a distance, the sculpture appears smooth, yet upon close inspection the sharp, pixelated edges become clear. From afar, the spectator sees what seems to be a sweet child. Upon closer inspection, the youthful figure appears to transform into an almost menacing robotic figure. Suddenly, her identity has changed, reflecting how identity has become warped due to technology. The pixelated effect betrays this layer of significance, as the artist explains that the piece can we viewed “as a metaphor for the patination and discoloration of emotion engendered by the digital era.”
