Proposal for the public foyer of a concert hall
Iteratio transfigures musical form into sculptural form. Suspended overhead are undulating rows of long pipes painted inside and out in a limited palette of rich colours. Each pipe is encircled at the lower end by floating, mirror-finish stainless steel rings that reflect and fragment the movement of audiences gathered below. The repetition of these elegant ‘pulse modules’ ambiguously suggest various kinds of musical instruments, or voices in a choir, or perhaps the individual notes in a musical score. The modulated configurations articulate the melodic lines and rhythmic progressions of orchestral composition and evoke the waves of sound that engulf an audience during a performance.
Concept shortlisted for Hamer Hall Public Art Commission at The Arts Centre, Melbourne in 2011
