CLIENT:West Shore Arts Council DATE: september 2016 & 2017 SCOPE: installation - DESIGN & FABRICATE MATERIALS: BLACK-PAINTED LASERCUT plywood, wax paper, hockey tape, led light notes: re-commissioned by lululemon yyj, in collaboration with limbic media
Our proposal for an 8' tall geometric stalagmitic sculpture was chosen as one of four light-themed art installations featured at the first ever "Light Up The Hills" Event in West Hills, BC.
The complex structure was digitally designed using visual-based parametric scripting technology, then each piece was laser cut and the sculpture was assembled in-house.
"Light Up The Hills" took place on September 24, 2016 and featured art installations, live music and dance performances, and a community-wide lantern festival.
Inspired by the organic geological forms of stalagmites deep inside ancient caves, this dynamic piece evokes a natural and prehistoric form while exemplifying modern technologies and building methods.
