Tomak - PHANTOMAK

Category: Artwork 11. January 2012

In the exhibition “PHANTOMAK” in the Vienna University of Technology, sculptures by the artist Tomak are presented to the public for the first time. The sculpture series PHANTOMAK consists of eleven individual busts of the artist, produced in a complex technical procedure – Wood Jackson, Rotpeter, Height, Headquarters...

„Thus my work completes itself by the sculpture.“ (TOMAK)
The sculpture series PHANTOMAK was produced in the course of the past one and a half years. The works were manufactured in close cooperation with the Vienna University of Technology (institute of art and design – spatial development and modelling), the German company Rampf Tooling and an Austrian foundation. CastYourArt is responsible for the organisation of the project.


The sculpture series Phantomak is composed of eleven busts of the artist TOMAK. For the production of the busts the artist was scanned by a laser at the Vienna University of Technology (institute of art and design – spatial development and modelling) and a digital three dimensional model was manufactured. On the basis of polyurethane, a material of the company Rampf Tooling, moulds of the busts were cast and subsequently eleven identical busts were cut out by an industrial roboter, based on the 3D data. Producing a single bust required approximately hundred hours of milling time. After the cutting out all busts were individualized by the artist. “I made variations of the eleven identical busts, destroyed and remade them, painted, cut, burnt them and completed them with metal applications.” Thus trademark artworks in the style of TOMAK were created as known from his graphical and pictorial oeuvre.
