The Luhring exhibit in the spring of 2015 was an opportunity for the artist Christopher Wool to display the majority of his collection of wire sculptures undertaken with a talented team of fabricators and consultants including Michael Koller Digital Design, Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry and Craft Engineering Studio. The fabrication process for each sculpture involves the assembly of hundreds of cast bronze and stainless steel components generated from a digital model. The digital model is also used to perform structural analysis and study the behavior of the sculptures. For each sculpture, Craft collaborates with the artist and design team to modify and tune the structural performance of the sculptures to within acceptable limits of stress, displacement and frequency. The exhibit at the Luhring Gallery required additional coordination with the gallery space to accommodate the installation and display of the sculptures.
