Inspired by the ivy climbers of the surrounding trees, the art sculpture was derived by plant growth algorithms similar to a branching diagram of an overall tree geometry. A secondary network of glowing fibre optic cables is generated to illuminate the structure. Folded stainless steel panels not only define the outer skin of the sculpture but act as the main load-bearing structure. Panels were CNC-cut and folded which allowed for high precision in fabrication. All prefabricated ring elements were easily bolted together layer by layer.
