PIPAPO - Sculpture for Art Basel Miami
Location: Art Basel Miami 2013, Interior Design Show 2013
J. MAYER H. Architects,
In cooperation with Galerie EIGEN + ART
Pipapo reflects Juergen Mayer H.‘s fascination with camouflaged digital design and the interrelations of communicative space. The sculpture represents an endless pattern field and plays with dimension and form, the exposed and hidden and the material and the immaterial. Pipapo is made of Caesarstone surface from the Supernatural series, with a natural stone pattern delicately milled to create a three dimensional, lattice-like formation. The work is based on Mayer H.’s long standing investigation, both in architecture and art, of data protection patterns found, for example, on the inside of envelopes sent by government agencies and banks. Their extremely dense optical pattern aims to protect the personal content of letters from indiscretion and to make sensitive data invisible by presenting a sphere of exclusive knowledge.
