Boxy metal air conditioners that hang from windows have become a quintessential element of urban landscapes. Now that the world is getting warmer, more of these machines are obstructing facades and scarring street scenes. These appliances tend to have the same design, no matter the brand.
Airco re-imagines the iconic window air conditioning unit as a beautiful marble block, transformed into a timeless sculpture.
White Goods (series, 2019, ongoing)
Every home has them – bulky, large, usually rectilinear machines that are hidden in closets. They exist for their use alone. White goods are the name given to these home appliances that all look the same. As practical machines of daily life they do not ask for much attention.
Reproduced in white Carrara marble, this sculpture series fits into every space, but asks to be seen.
