As a sculptor, I was commissioned to create a digital sculpt based on provided concept design for further manufacturing and installation.
I worked closely with the architectural engineer and was responsible for making adjustments to the sculpt to ensure that it meets engineering requirements: wing curvature as per wind study, the weight of body parts is distributed as per blueprints, making
adjustments to steel armature placement inside the sculpture etc.
The final sculpture stands approximately 50 feet tall and weights about 7800 pounds. It can be observed at the intersection of: Younge street and the Esplanade in Toronto, Canada.
