Caged Elephant

ArkiBal, ElefantBar, Elephant, Steel, Thorlak Solberg
Design Project

The elephant is built as an installation at Elefantbar ’17 – An event held by ArkiBal each year.

The caged elephant is an installation that can be read in several ways. As party installation is an interesting space within a not too complex entanglement of metal lines – as art installation it is critical adressing elephants in captivity.

The elephant consists of a MDF waffle structure enclosed in white cardboard and tracing paper. It is lit from within. The cage is made of 18 reinforcement meshes which gets its stability by a wire joint in every other intersection. We chose to work with reinforcement mesh due to its harsh expression and as a study in how to use the material alternatively.
