SUMO’s sculpture “Chroma” was featured as the artistic highlight of the ‘Access America Design Pavilion’ at the 2015 Toronto Interior Design Show.
“Drawing inspiration from one of Venezuela’s master artist Jesus Soto, and our own immigration experience, we created a place of play, encounter and shared memories.
This sculpture invites visitors to walk through it. In it, single phrases – from a poem we wrote – were placed on the tubes. Close to the centre a small open space allowed visitors to read the full poem.
Walking out of the sculpture, the visitor would find a different message and a completely different perception of the piece. Reinforcing the idea of cultural displacement and of ‘gaining perspective’.
