Firmament Series
2008-2010
The Firmament series consists of four large steel sculptures made with Antony Gormley based on the polyhedral packing of space in and around the human body.
The sculptures were made for shows in London, Mexico, Brussels and Melbourne.
Based on the precedent of some of Antony Gormley’s smaller scale hand crafted works, Tristan Simmonds invented an innovative process, developed software and carried out the digital sculpting of polyhedral geometries to 3D body scans.
The process incorporates sculpting through to structural analysis, construction sequencing and fabrication data production ensuring the sculptures are viable and quickly and easily built exactly to design.
