The Rice Gallery in Houston, Texas is currently showing artist Soo Sunny Park‘’s installation Unwoven Light, which is formed of chain link fencing and small pieces of iridescent Plexiglas. The grid structure of the fencing holds the Plexiglas in place so that each piece can catch the light according to angle in which it is held in place. The effect of the light on the thousands of pieces is jewel-like and the dappled light that forms reflects around the room. Parks comments: “Like a net, the sculpture is a filter that is meant to capture the light that is already there and force it to reveal itself. Now we can see it, the light, in purple shadows and yellow-green reflections that both mirror the shape of the fence and restructure the space they inhabit.” The installation is about the ephemeral qualities of light and how light shapes our perceptions of architectural space. The light effects change constantly throughout the day as the light in the room changes so visitors can have a different experience depending on what time of day they view the installation.
