The project was managed by Urban Art Projects Shanghai, who also fabricated the sculpture in their workshops on the outskirts of the city. 

I am always grateful for their support and skilled team of panel beaters who do such an amazing job with these complex forms and transitions of curvature.

It is part of a series of works based on the surface spanning of a torus knot, where the edge curve traverses the surface of a torus three times. The symmetry is not that obvious at first, since the sculpture is not orientated along the axis of the torus.
