'The Black Cloud" by Heather and Ivan Morison

'The Black Cloud" by Heather and Ivan Morison

With their comprehensive work the Wales-based artists Heather and Ivan Morison clearly focus on spacial experiences – releationships between human beings and architectural human artefacts.

One of the Morison’s latest works is ‘The Black Cloud’, a pavilion-like timber structure which was commissioned by Situations, a program of the Place Research Centre at the Univerity of the West of England in Bristol, and realised in collaboration with architect Sash Reading. The artists chose the shabono, a circular structure built by the Yanomamo Amer-Indians from the Amazon, as a starting point for the oval form of ‘The Black Cloud’. The structure is composed of triangular planes of a deformed geodesic dome which results in an amorphous and vivid-looking topology. ‘The Black Cloud’ will be visitable until 6 December 2009 in Victoria Park in Bristol.

'The Opposite of All Those Things'

‘The opposite of all those things’, a work from 2008, broaches the issue of gravity and spacial perception. The complex crystal structure, a giant black rock is flying against all physical laws, threatening and heavy-looking like the sword of Damocles, above the visitors head. In fact the rock is a kite which was produced in collaboration with a company specialising in the manufacture of three-dimensional fabric structures.
