Ciclotramas,  it’s the title given to these spectacular tree-like art installations created by the artist duo Janaina Mello and Daniel Landini. The two Brazilian artists meticulously untwist the ropes, fasten the ends to the surround walls giving the illusion or tree branches filling the volume and often resembling neural network pathways, or some sort of fractal patterns. The intention of the artists is to create, with the“choreography of intertwining lines”,  metaphors around organic structures of interrelated and independent parts, encompassing the passage of time. Since 2010 the artworks have gone through 17 different iterations, more can be seen at their website, Mello + Landini.
