Research; Large Scale Installations

As some extra research, I have been looking at various large scale installations as a way of showing that those of a large size have been done before, and can be done in the future through our proposed installation. I have also tried to find ones where a particular experience has been created.

Sculpture on Ice

Iceberg by Gabby O'Connor

Iceberg by Gabby O’Connor gives an elegant yet dangerous presence within their ‘What Lies Beneath’ exhibition.

Capturing Resonance

Layers of Irisdescence from 'Capturing Resonance'

This installation is by sculptor Soo Sunny Park and composer Spencer Topel, the colourful and iridescent installation feels like a work of exquisite glass. In fact, Park created the undulating textile by inserting thousands of acrylic squares into chain link fencing. As “Capturing Resonance” was created in a window-filled space, different lighting makes the piece a constantly evolving palette of colour, shadows and reflection.

Space, Light, Sound and Drugs

There are no pamphlets or brochures in the installation, no pointing fingers, only a mind-opening experience and a chance to reach people coming for the installation. An opportunity to talk to people lured by architecture.
