Layers of Iridescence

Layers of Iridescence


Hello everyone! Chloé from Plenty of Colour here again.

Share this Post Pin It

I am a major fan of art installations, especially when creators turn an everyday object into something breathtaking. An example of making the mundane magical is this beautiful piece called “Capturing Resonance” by sculptor Soo Sunny Park and composer Spencer Topel.

Featured at deCordova Museum, the colourful and iridescent installation feels like a work of exquisite glass. In fact, Park created the undulating textile by inserting thousands of acrylic squares into chain link fencing. As “Capturing Resonance” was created in a window-filled space, different lighting makes the piece a constantly evolving palette of colour, shadows and reflection. The installation also features an audio element as composer Spencer Topel created an dreamy, elegant composition that is activated by motion sensors so the sound is ever-changing and layered like its iridescent muse. “Capturing Resonance” showcases that any material, no matter how industrial or mundane it may seem, can become a gorgeous piece of art.
