'Ciclotrama' is a series of organic rope sculptures that draw inspiration from nature. The art pieces are created by Brazilian artists Janiana Mello Landini and Daniel who collaborated on the tree-inspired project.

Resembling leafless trees, these rope sculptures transform from branched elements into piles of rope and are displayed in a way that is intriguing and visually bold. Hung atop canvases and on walls, Janiana Mello Landini and Daniel's art pieces are a contemporary translation of nature.

They also act as a social commentary on the fleeting state of our environment and are somewhat melancholic in their overall aesthetic. Illustrating the passage of time, the tree-inspired sculptures are tangled to represent the varying paths one can take in their life.
