The Incredible Wire Mesh Sculptures that Punctuated the Coachella Skyline
“Etherea” is the site-specific installation by Edoardo Tresoldi conceived for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.
The installation consists of three transparent sculptures inspired by Neoclassical and Baroque architecture, all with identical shapes but different sizes, positioned on an axis and measuring 36, 54 and 72 feet in height, respectively.
“Etherea” follows a growing experiential path where architecture becomes a tool and place for contemplation, a dedicated space where the sky and clouds are narrated through the language of classical architecture. Thanks to the transparent wire mesh, an optical effect made of perspectives and dimensional relationships is generated by the passage through the three sculptures and measuring scales, which either amplifies or reduces the distance between man and sky.
