Overview

The Dragon Fly symbolism was the sculpture’s design inspiration: “change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. The change that is often referred to has its source in mental and emotional maturity and understanding the deeper meaning of life”. The form signifies self-realization while the subtle asymmetry represents adaptability. The Sculpture was produced entirely of carbon steel. It expands 5.04 meter in length with a height of 1.20 meter and 1 meter in depth.

Goals

This is a commissioned sculpture for a private art collection. It was created to occupy a crucial intersection space between ground floor and bottom end of the parking lot ramp. The building’s art collection is meticulous place, inside and out, to persuade the visitor into a special mud to enjoy each step of their journey. The garden and parking lots alone house 11 sculptures including Epiphany Asymmetric Variable. This sculpture was thought out to be an artistic piece as well as a landmark to visitors. Artistically, the sculpture explores the subjects of asymmetry, color theory, and perception. It intends to encourage visitors be curious and explorative. The Sculpture can be evaluated in two segments, the central flouting yellow subject that communicates creativity, and the red geometric forms that elegantly interact with the architectural surroundings. The composition is completed by the interaction of the elements and space on a balance equation between art, design, architecture, and perception
