Onsite installation of the Tree of Life, a large-scale acrylic sculpture that will be permanently installed at Toronto's waterfront.
The sculpture consists of 184 compound rhombused boxes with symbols demonstrating the evolution of the health sciences evoking a table of elements. Dimensions are roughly 9x9 feet. Made entirely of solid acrylic (plexiglass).
Each box is handmade, all symbols and text have been CNC-etched and hand-painted.
The studio worked with renderings of the sides of each box, all of which were CNC-machined. After that, the construction was entirely analog. The tops and bottoms were cut with a table saw. The compound angles that made the boxes rhombus shaped were calculated entirely by hand.
