Marble Mural Athens : Architecture
Contemporary Greek Design – by Point Supreme Architects
18 Jan 2011
Marble Mural Athens
Design: Point Supreme Architects
The piece is a hymn to marble; a 10 x 2m wall consisting of 7 marble pieces of different origin, natural history, color, texture and image. These marble pieces are treated with various traditional and digital techniques of workmanship that mingle with the inherent material narrations; holes, hidden and visible cuts, two and three dimensional relief, digital and handmade print, imagery from the past and the future, light.
Consequently, marble is revealed not as the clean and current matter we are accustomed to seeing it as, but rather as a rich, thick live object that hides and reveals stories, can be transformed into a painting, stands up and creates space.
The project is the result of sculpting, cnc engraving, painting, digital printing and water cutting on marble.
