The Statue of Liberty is located in New York on the Liberty Island. It was built in France and offered by the French people. It arises from the collaboration of the sculptor Auguste Bartholdi, from the architect Eugéne Auguste Bartholdi, from the engineer Gustave Eiffel.
Instead of representing a full and continuous skin, it is symbolized by an alternation heights and space, realizing a skeleton and decomposing the successive forms into strata. So the global shape is suggested by the space, while offering of the transparency and so the lightness to the set.
This sequenced representation gets a kinetic and dynamic effect by reduction or progressive increase of the space between plates, causing an effect of acceleration or deceleration.
