This wonderful sculpture is the work of Boris Tellegen created for the Teenage Kicks Festival in Rennes, France.

With a background in industrial design engineering and traditional graffiti, the Netherlandish artist really learned through the time how to break the plain in order to give form to sculpturally driven works.
According to the multidisciplinary artist his work “investigates the tension between planning and happenstance; the semblance of order undone by schematic chaos. Mankind is driven by an unshakeable faith in progress, where modern technology and constant growth leads us to a better world. My work explores a different outcome, where the automated forces unleashed develop structures and minds of their own.”

His studies in design and architecture awakened in him an interest in
 architectural plans and city layouts which eventually, led to the creation of what he called his “isometric industrial landscapes.” His sculptures and installations combine building materials that at first sight appear to us as randomly distributed, just to discover, after a closer look, intricate forms and landscapes like the piece we see here.
