Milan - Bracco Foundation, Expo in the City
THE VORTEX site specifics, permanent collection
June 15th 2015
Located in the Bracco Foundation historical industrial area in Lambrate, the “Vortex” installation represents an eight meters high waterspout that carries in its vortex thousands of plastic cups. With its catchy colors and its imposing presence, the Vortex not only symbolizes energy and vitality, but also the destructive power of the plastic from which it is formed. The work is among the collateral events of EXPO 2015.
The installation was commissioned by the Bracco Foundation and is currently a part of its permanent collection. It was promoted by the Ministry of Environment and constructed with the cooperation of Roma Tre University.
