DESCRIPTION

“Sculptural storage formats” is an exhibition that delves into Nicosia’s intricate rhythm created by natural cycles and human interaction. This rhythmic duality forms the urban landscape’s lifeblood, dictating unique patterns and cadences that tell the city’s stories. Each beat, whether enduring or fleeting, resonating or clashing, visible or subdued, creates a dynamic symphony that alludes to the constant motion of the city. The title, ‘Sculptural Storage Formats,’ reflects the core concept of the exhibition: the transformation of abstract data into tangible form. Each sculpture is more than a mere artistic creation; it is a ‘storage format,’ a physical embodiment of the data. Just as a hard drive stores information in binary code, these sculptures store the ‘information’ of Nicosia’s rhythm in their esthetical properties.

Harnessing the power of data from the Smart Nicosia project, “Sculptural storage formats” offers a unique lens through which to view the city’s heartbeat. This data capturing ever-changing environmental conditions and the oscillating tide of people and vehicles reveals multiple patterns. Each element adds to a harmonious symphony of the city, setting a unique tempo in which daily rhythms intertwine with the city’s significant milestones and life rituals.
