Mello + Landini, Ciclotrama, Ciclotrama by Mello + Landini, Janiana Mello, Daniel Landini, rope art,

According to Mello + Landini, the Ciclotramas symbolize the passage of time. Each installation includes a length of rope laid on the ground, either in a pile or in a meandering line, and a portion raised off the ground and splintered into a pinned tree-like formation. The multi-strand cables are unraveled into very fine strands that are fastened onto nails.

Much like trees, there is variation in the Ciclotrama installations. The artists have constructed Ciclotramas in different sizes, colors, and patterns. Mello + Landini’s artworks are available for purchase on Artsy.
