soo sunny park: unwoven light chain link fence sculpture

american artist soo sunny park’’s ‘unwoven light’ installation animates the rice gallery’’s expansive space, transforming it into a shimmering world of light, shadow, and brilliant color. suspended from the walls and ceiling, thirty-seven individually sculpted units are arranged as a graceful, twisting flow of abstract form. users are invited to meander slowly as one might stroll along a river’s edge, stopping to admire the glints of light that dance on the water’s surface.the installation continues the artist’s ongoing experimentation with the ephemeral qualities of light and how light affects our perceptions of architectural space.

 

‘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 colorful reflections and refractions on the installation’s surfaces and on the gallery floor and walls.’ says park

  • I like how this installation is both functional thought provoking at the same time. Not many sculptures like this one can fit into one’s living room and look as effortlessly as a chandelier.
