Central Park West: Process

Have you ever wondered how it all works?


The design process begins with a collection of ideas. These ideas are transformed and ultimately narrowed to produce a single concept. The concept is then developed into a series of drawings that undergo extensive revision to ensure the best possible sculpture.

The fabrication process begins with a collection of materials. Each material is manipulated in preparation for the final assembly. This can involve cutting, fitting, welding, grinding, sanding, cleaning, stacking, glueing, painting, and much more. Once all the pieces are ready, they come together to form the final sculpture. This particular sculpture was built in parts. The central sphere was made in the studio while the surrounding sphere was constructed entirely on site.
