Locomotion is a series of sculptures inspired by the origins of sports, as a derivative of both play and hunting tactics. Historical analysis of movement through photography, forms, volumes and arrangements have been extracted. The sculptures reference the experience and science of sports and movement live, recorded, slowed down, paused, re-played and viewed from multiple perspectives at once.
Seeking to visibly relate to the modernist architecture of the site, its specific usage of materials and volumes, the sculptures have been realized in matching concrete.
At the front of the school a long jump is visualized a series of elevated sculptures. Landing at the entrance of the school, the sequence expresses a leap of faith in education, sports and life itself.
At the back the wrestlers are scattered over the rocky landscape. Here the sequence of sculptures becomes a work of true land art and proposes the interaction between two characters.
