NYC fabrication shop, working with Artists & institutions from concept to fabrication & installation.
SCULPTURE & INSTALLATION
Sandy Smith has a degree in sculpture from the Glasgow School of Art and an MFA from Columbia University in NYC.
A passion for sculpture & installation art was his impetus for starting a fabrication business, and we continue to prioritize this line of work.
See below for a few examples of our work in this field;
21' TALL POMPOM MONUMENT
CNC / hand carving
This prize-winning sculpture was fabricated in foam, working to a 3d model provided by the Artist. To keep within a budget a combination of CNC and hand-carving was used to make an accurate 21 foot tall foam model, which was then covered in over 15,000 pompoms.
MODULAR VIEWING ROOM
Modular large-scale carpentry
This 30' x 20' room, with wraparound corridor & matching ply I-beams, was built off-site as a series of bolt-together panels for a rapid & precise install on site at Gavin Brown's Enterprise for Artist Rirkrit Tiravanija.
CUSTOM DISPLAY HOODS
Customizing pre-fabricated units
Starting from an industrial unit, we customized these cabinets by repainting, adding a lightbox base to the interior, replacing the glass with a custom-color acrylic manufactured specifically to fit, and strengthened the whole thing to be a safe, freestanding unit.
WATERJET BRASS LATTICE
Cut from a single panel of 1/8" thick brass on a water jet profiler.
Steven Harris Architects LLP
Our in-house CNC capabilities include precision carving in a variety of materials. This relief sculpture was carved in HDU foam, and finished with a 2-part urethane spray finish.
Working with the Amant Foundation we fabricated and installed the screens, monitor stands and benches for this large, complex video installation.
