NIKOLA TESLA MONUMENT

In a generous park area of the street named after Nikola Tesla, we build a symbolic bronze sculpture of Teslas work bench, in a slightly above-lifesize scale (cca 1,4x). As though Tesla just left for work. The scale stays in harmony with the scale canon of the assigned space. We draw from historic illustrations and photographs. Very important aspect of the work for us is that the final version is authentically created, bearing markings of historic details and uniform sculptural craftsmanship. Casting formally perfect copies of machines is not in our aim.
