A Beautiful Duet as Time Waltz around!
“#18 Duality” BUND18 Chirstmas Art Installation Show
Duration: 23 November 2018 – 10 February 2019
Creator: Mirage Makers Curator: MY studio
Mirage Makers, the French interactive art team has recently been commissioned to create this one-of-a-kind art installation, inspired by the BUND18 historic building.
The centerpiece is the silhouette of the building – made with 3D printing and laser cutting technologies, and decorated with flashing neon lights. The spiral metal structure surrounding it is a symbol of the historic building, which is now witnessing the rapid development of Shanghai and embracing the future of this vigorous metropolis after going through ups and downs over the past century or so.
The installation is wrapped in layers of soft feathers, which symbolize that this historic building stretches out both wings, showing its softest side to embrace the world, and at the same time looking to the future. When a visitor touches the interactive mechanism, the installation will start rotating slowly in two directions, like collision between the past and the future. The juxtaposition of interlaced neon lights, the silhouette and gaps between the feathers tends to make you feel that the future is just around the corner as time goes by.
The past and the future, love and hope, are interweaved as a beautiful duet at this festivity!
Let us bid farewell to 2018, and hope for a brighter new year of 2019!
