A new architectural installation commissioned for the first anniversary of the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) in Sydney creates a spectacular space for displaying catalogues and other publications. Designed by LAVA changing lights and effects will adapt and grow in response to each new gallery project creating an ephemeral and surreal experience.
The installation is an evolutionary display, which will adapt and grow in response to each new gallery project while creating an ephemeral and surreal experience with changing lights and effects. mHolding a selection of Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation and Art & Australia publications in honeycomb shaped cells, the installation is backlit through transparent acrylic via energy efficient LED lights.
“The shape of the installation is based on a ‘voronoi’, or ‘bubble geometry’ “, Dr Gene Sherman, director of Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation who commissioned the work said, “LAVA`s installation possesses an aesthetic that resonates throughout the gallery space while being surprisingly functional.”
