The art installation is a composition of re-purposed cardboard tubes that create a formation of extruded circles. Each element exists in symbiosis with its surroundings, producing “Ripple Effect”. A structure of 5’x 5’ in size is suspended from space within the opening of the existing skylight, creating a gathering place under it, for viewers to look up and explore generated “landscape”.
This installation is a representation of the module that could be endlessly repeated and serves as a multiplier, another meaning of “Ripple Effect”. Floodlights, likely in a red or purple tone, illuminating it from above will aid the visual impact of the piece.
The cardboard tubes are donated by various entities, such as architectural offices, printing shops, households, etc. They are reused in a new way to create an overhead installation that is hanging on fishing lines which makes it a stand-alone floating object. Fasteners are repurposed from previous artworks. In collaboration with Xiao S. Li https://www.studioxiaoli.com/
