‘Unwoven Lights’ Installation by Artist Soo Sunny Park
‘Unwoven Lights’ is one of the latest installations by Korean artist Soo Sunny Park. This fascinating installation is similar to her previous installation called ‘Capturing Resonance’ and the materials from the latter, that is, chain link fencing and Plexiglass have been used in the construction of ‘Unwoven Lights’ installation. Suspended from the walls and ceiling, thirty-seven individually sculpted units are arranged as a graceful, twisting flow of abstract form.
“There are no coloured plexi used in the work. It is an optical illusion, depending on the intensity of light hitting the plexi and the viewer’s viewing angle, each plexi piece bounces color differently.” says Soo Sunny Park. “‘We don’t notice light when looking so much as we notice the things light allows us to see. Unwoven Light captures light and causes it to reveal itself, through colourful reflections and refractions on the installations surfaces and on the gallery floor and walls.”
The installation will be exhibited at Art Gallery of Rice University in Houston until 30th August 2013, animating the gallery’s’ expansive space, transforming it into a shimmering world of light, shadow, and brilliant colour. Visitors are invited to enter the space and see how both natural and artificial light change when viewed at a certain angle or at a different time of day.
