"off the grid" silverlink point

Rennie, Colin and Watkinson, Cate (2016) "off the grid" silverlink point. [Artefact]

Item Type: Artefact


The sculpture represents a visual response to the words sliverlink point, loosely based on a abstracted chain, formed of a series of edge linked triangular planes forming a vertical tower. The work is made in highly polished stainless steel to reflect and the sky and the elements ans the weather and lighting conditions change. the work was designed using parametric modeling software which gives the structure an emergent and futuristic atmosphere. At dusk and dawn the sculptures internal lighting system creates a changing cycle of colour that projects outward from the centre of the work.
