DOMA

Somehow, this piece “Colossus” looks familiar…. Argentinean collective DOMA constructed a real-life Iron Giant for Tecnopolis 2012, an annual art and science showcase. At nearly 148 feet tall, the reconstructed power line pylon towers over Buenos Aires’s Bicentennial Park. The collective’s members—Mariano Barbieri, Julian Pablo Manzelli, Matias Vigliano, and Orilo Blandini—have worked together for nearly 15 years, and have remarked that they are “addicted” to seeing people’s reactions to their zany installations. With its blinking neon heart, shoulders, and facial features, “Colossus” will surely turn heads.
