Kalamatoria 02

13km worth of black and silver threads twisted together were stretched out in a reticulated structure across a large open atrium. The entire form was necessarily dictated by the interior space of the architecture, lines of movement, the movement of the sun, and the placement of the security sensors. The work appeared and disappeared again depending on the existing lighting arrangements and reflected natural light, shifting in an infinite number of variations as time passes. The points of light also twinkle and appear depending on the movements of the viewer. This is a sculpture that consists of phenomena, existing within the movements of the Sun and the visitor. <D.W>

黒と銀の撚り合わされた糸が延べ13km分、吹き抜けの大空間に立体網目状に張り巡らされている。全体の形状は建築の内部空間、動線、太陽の動き、セキュリティーセンサーの配置等から必然的に導き出された。作品は既存の照明と自然光の反射によって現れては消え、時間と共に無限の変化を見せる。また、鑑賞者の動きによって光の点は瞬きとなって現れる。太陽の動きと行為の中に存在する現象の彫刻。
