On-site Installation. Mesh of coloured elastic cords within steel structure / 26'-9″x 7'-9″x 2'-0″
Prism, brings vibrant color and optical illusion to the lobby of a new residential building at 205 Water Street, Dumbo.
Made of triangular surfaces of elastic colored rope, the installation provides a powerful contrast to the concrete walls of the industrial-style lobby. Simple, curving geometries intersect, creating volumes of lit space. As the visitor walks the lobby ramp, transversal views combine the sculpture's three modules into dynamic alternate perspectives.
The installation is positioned along the wall’s joint lines, acting as a filter of color to emphasize the concrete material. The zenithal light becomes rays of color like an optical prism.
