Bridging Home, London
A huge traditional Korean house, complemented by a bamboo garden on one side – sounds picturesque right? But imagine this home landing right on London’s busiest streets! And especially when this street is surrounded by tall buildings that spell elegance and class? The sole objective behind this work of art was the artist, Do Ho Suh’s wish to project cultural diversity, something drawn from his personal experience – his journey as a migrant, struggling to cope up with the sudden change in cultures to the places he moved around the world. The Bridging Home may seem a misfit in the location it is installed, but holds a special place int he hearts of all those who can relate to it.
The magnificent beauty of this work of art is at its best at night when the entire structure illuminates to create illusionary patterns that are a treat to the eye! Fifty glass prism structures are lit up with projectors inside them, and they are the ones that create mesmerizing patterns on these glass prisms. And no, this isn’t an all visual art installation- it has relevant audio to make enhance its beauty!
The Constellation, Abu Dhabi
A dazzling art installation, the Constellation has many bright geometric shapes suspended from around 1000 tensioned cables! These 1300 geometric shapes are the whole and soul of this art installation, giving the required effect and sparkly overall look to this stunning work of art. And just to make sure the structure gets the light effect it so genuinely deserves, around 2000 lights were specially crafted – to illuminate this beautiful structure!
Situated against Italy’s picturesque shores, this art installation looks like it will vanish as it goes higher! Created out of wire mesh, the structure resembles remains of a building, which are inscribed with flying birds. Designed by Eduardo Tresoldi, this artwork speaks volumes and definitely sets you into thinking!
