Gabriel Orozco’s Mobile Matrix is a unique piece of art, made of a gray whale skeleton weighing 3,739 pounds. The work has ellipses and circles drawn in graphite on the bones, to dynamize the structure, and resembling the movement of waves. The huge piece was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In order to be able to transport it from Mexico City, we designed a complex packing process, allowing us to disassemble and assemble it. We directed and supervised the entire technical and museographic process.
