PROJECT “DON’T HATE THE PLAYER”, PUBLIC ART SCULPTURE, TORONTO RAPTORS PUBLIC TRAINING FACILITY, TORONTO, ON
DESIGN NIALL MCCLELLAND
ART CONSULTANT PUBLIC ART MANAGEMENT
BUILT BY EVENTSCAPE, MARCH 2016
Unique Characteristics & Project Challenges:
The initial design needed to be adapted slightly to the limitations of radius possible with this rugged industrial pipe material. In order to achieve the complex twists and turns of the design, single axis elbows were assembled in a rotated plane. The Eventscape fabrication team worked closely with the artist to evaluate each unit, realizing the complexity while staying on budget. This unique solution was a combination of CNC detailing, an industrial bending process and the skill of hand craftsmanship to build visually seamless twisted sculptures.
