‘Popcorn’ increasing in size

I am currently experimenting with concrete sculptures: using  flexible formwork creating ‘expanding’ volumes for a traveling Public Art Project, ‘Popcorn’.

Now casts are growing to an industrial scale at Blokrete concrete plant. Casting experiments will gradually increase in size arriving at 1m in diameter and reaching over two tonnes. The forces of the liquid concrete become much stronger, subjecting the materials and sculptural method to tougher tests.
