“UMI” by Daniel Popper in Chicago, Illinois
Multidisciplinary artist Daniel Popper recently worked on new large scale sculptural works. “UMI” – meaning life in Swahili and mother in Arabic, is 1 of 5 new works of Daniel Popper from the Human+Nature exhibition opening at the Morton Arboretum.
For this exhibition the artist tried to explore some new techniques, working with 3d sculpting and the same time experimenting with new materials and building techniques. Made from steel & GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete), sculpture “UMI” stands 20ft tall. The pieces by Daniel Popper will on display for 1 year.
