Shapiro has been producing the Sisyphus sculptures for almost 20 years, and has eternal installations of his works in Switzerland, Germany, and Australia. Needing the works to moreover reside particularly individual homes, he has created a Kickstarter to start out manufacturing on three numerous sorts of smaller, residence tables: an end desk, three-foot metallic espresso desk, and a four-foot hardwood espresso desk.

My goal with this Kickstarter is to get Sisyphus into people’s properties for them to benefit from as every furnishings and paintings, however as well as, to encourage a gaggle of composers to place in writing ‘music’ for it.”
