Macedonian sculptor Dragan Poposki – Dada designed his stone sundial as a simple semicircular arch. Bunky, semicircular protrusions appear on its surface, attracting the touch of passers-by. In this way, the sculptor’s intention to experience his sculpture is realized. The need for direct contact, as a way of empathizing with the sculpture, and its appearance in space are important starting points on which the artistic research of this Macedonian artist is based. He always finds inspiration in nature, its marginal, even insignificant details, which he imprints in a mildly stylized, simplified form into selected materials, in this case Istrian stone, which also becomes an important carrier of the aesthetic message.
