ZABLUDOWICZ COLLECTION ANNUAL COMMISSION: JON RAFMAN 8 OCTOBER–20 DECEMBER 2015

As part of Jon Rafman’s first major solo exhibition in the UK, Windsor Workshop were commissioned by Zabludowicz Collection to fabricate the 8 ft Manifold figure. Visitors found the figure at the centre of the Sculpture Garden (hedge maze), the work was the transition piece between physical reality and the virtual reality of Rafman’s oculus rift work. To fabricate the work, Windsor Workshop sliced-up the 3D model and CNC milled the entire figure in full-scale negative segments. Once cast in GRP, the segments were joined together like a 3D puzzle. The finish is gilded gold leaf.
