Supersonic Interceptor

Bronze Sculpture, 2017

With this work, Cascione & Lusciov wanted to capture the essence of the supersonic speed concept, resulting in aerodynamic sculpture. Through the process of ideation, reference points have been made using technical studies on airfoils, cross section geometries designed to support supersonic speeds.

 

The sculptors have transposed the principles of aerodynamics in the artwork, maintaining the frontal area at a minimum thickness that could meet as little air friction as possible and consequently, the tail section is widened into a form that counters the shock waves and helps to stabilize the volume, while the tail develops into a convex form that recalls the progress of the sound waves of the Doppler effect caused by supersonic flight.
