Wellesley College, 2016
This site-specific installation was designed to simultaneously intervene and complement the playful light and shadow in Paul Rudolf’s Jewett Arts Center Sculpture Court at Wellesley College.
I created a table that would facilitate the transformation of natural light from the outside into a colorful dynamic landscape on the inside. I arranged the mirrors such that they echoed the rectangular grid of the aluminium screens on the facade, to create a contrasting organic form on the ceiling. I also designed the table to be inconspicous within the space, concealed by the railings and posts of the elevated level. The reflective landscape moves across the ceiling through the day, allowing viewers to experience changing shapes, color tones, and locations.
The table was built using Baltic Birch Plywood and 12”x 4” acrylic mirrors. I used an assortment of gel filters to create the softly colored shadows on the ceiling.
