pamela tan weaves colorful strings into projection: kite installation in malaysia

floating in the sky yet strung together in place, pamela tan’s projection: kite is a spatial installation that symbolizes life and festivity, crafted for the good vibes festival in malaysia. the designer took from her architecture background to create an immersive environment where viewers experience a common object in a massive, exploded perspectival play.

tan’s methodology was to physically delineate the graphical perspective of a kite with hundreds of colorful strings. the installation was configured with modular structures to project a kite, a common festive crafted object representing a symbol of celebration. enlarging the object and following its geometries, the designer’s installation piece fits into the festival perfectly.

vibrant colorful strings from the body of the kite envelop the structure extending into the central atrium. the loose strings move with the breeze and music, providing a dynamic installation for guests to dance and be in. weaving in and between the interstitial spaces and structural arches, the colorful strings playfully invite you to experience a visual portal of lightness and transparency.
