Aeneas Wilder's Structure Raises Questions of Gravity and Construction

To question and understand concepts like gravity and design, UK-based designer Aeneas Wilder built a structure that has no other material but wood to hold itself up. This mesmerizing project was exhibited and then collpsed into pieces to study and explore art and its boundaries.

Exhibited at the Longside Gallery at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the UK, this architectonic piece was made of 10,000 pieces of Iroko wood and it's called Untitled # 155. He explains his concept behind the project: "By limiting the creative act to one simple material, in ample supply, with clearly defined parameters (no fixing, no joining, no additional materials, only balance and gravity allowed for the construction process) a door opens into a wholly unexplored creative territory." Wilder produced an strong installation that was fragile to the touch, which is why it ended up being knocked down to the ground.

Untitled # 55 by Aeneas Wilder was crashed down at a sold out event called Kick Down for Untitled # 155.
