US-based artist Soo Sunny Park takes over Rice Gallery, part of Rice University in Houston, Texas, with a glistening abstract installation called Unwoven Light. The suspended piece is made up of 37 individual units composed of chain-link fencing arranged into a vast, light-reflective sculptural form.
Iridescent Plexiglas has been wired to the openings of the metal fence, causing ever-changing rainbows of light to bounce off each piece, making them change from clear to colourful as light hits them. The work demonstrates Park’s ongoing experimentation with the ephemeral qualities of light and its ability to affect our perceptions of architectural space.
Unwoven Light is on display until August 30 2013. Read more about the application of iridescence and its extraordinary colour effects in Iridescence: Structure and Light.
