“Unwoven light” Installation Soo Sunny Park
The Korean artist -based in New York – ” Soo Sunny Park” amazed us with her large-scale installation “Unwoven light.” Park linked thirty seven individually sculpted units and filled them with small pieces of Plexiglas squares. When light –with different angles- falls on this grid the wave-forms capture and reflect the light to look like a colorful diamond collection.
“My work often deals with this idea of liminal space, or interstitial space…there’s this feeling that I’m always looking out, from the inside out. There’s physical reality and the ideal reality, so I’m trying to balance between the two.”
In July 2012 she visited the “Rice gallery” in Houston to experience the natural elements of the space; proportions, surfaces and specially the lighting conditions either natural or artificial. “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.” Park said.
