26 Exposing Elements

Kimberley Adamek & Karine Quigley’s light installation exposes & animates invisible local textures.

EEThis site-responsive installation attempts to draw awareness to the existing materials and environmental forces at work in the local landscape and expose them in a playful and interactive fashion. Two walls of 100 moveable glass panels will respond with their reflections as Night\Shift explorers walk past them in the parking laneway beside Marisol.

The glass is heat-treated with textures from the surrounding site, enabling light passing through them to create incredible caustic patterns on the surrounding walls. A cable frame allows the tiles to move and the reflections to distort and become animated by wind and interaction, turning invisible details of the local environment into an opportunity for a new layer of engagement.
