Yuri Tuma offers audiences a point of “Departure,” a large-scale chromatic photography exhibition at Butter Gallery. With symmetry, patterns, and his signature use of mobile technology, Tuma reshapes the seemingly ordinary into ephemeral visual representations. His exploration of materiality, motion, and color are at times mesmerizing and, for the artist, represent an elevated inner sanctum. This meditative space of quiet and mental centering is where Tuma creates these works. His oeuvre, through clean shapes and simple lines, channel this transformative physical and psychological process.
In 2011, collector Craig Robins acquired the 24-foot prototype Fly’s Eye Dome with the intention of exhibiting it and using it as inspiration for a key element of the Miami Design District. The following year, The Buckminster Fuller Institute (BFI), in partnership with Goetz Composites, ConformLab and DRDesign, and a team of advisors began the development of a program to complete Fuller’s vision for the Fly’s Eye Dome using utilizing advanced technologies and materials not available to Fuller in the 1970’s. Robins, through his company Dacra, commissioned BFI to produce a Fly’s Eye Dome utilizing state-of-the-art materials, intelligence and techniques, to be prominently incorporated into a significant public plaza in the Miami Design District.
