This work consists of one wall-piece and a bench. The seating on the bench is created by using the urethane rubber molds in the wall-piece. The owner of the work acquires the right to use the urethane rubber molds to create further objects.

Working across media, conceptual artist Nicolas Lobo produces sculptures, installations, videos, performances, and works on paper through which he aims to represent the unrepresentable. Radio waves, social networks, no-fly zones, sound, and cyberspace are among the immaterial elements he has translated into physical forms. He has used wooden rods to sculpt an electromagnetic field and crafted an actual (and subtly disproportionate) bench based on a Google SketchUp virtual bench. By making the unseen visible and the immaterial tangible, Lobo wants to alert viewers to the forces—both positive and destructive—that shape contemporary society. “I hope people feel a certain kind of hate during the first moment they encounter [my work],” he says. “Later if they keep dealing with it I want them to feel like they can’t look at other things the same way anymore.”
