I Spy an Installation
The Dwell team sees scads of exhibits, pop-ups, and installations on our journeys both physical and digital, every week, from all over the globe. We're inspired by the power of such creative displays to surprise, create wonder, and sometimes simply amuse. Here are a few recent favorite installations. Look for more of our finds soon!
Artist William Lamson created the prismatic Solarium at the Storm King Art Center greenhouse out of 162 panels of sugar cooked to different temperatures. Lamson bakes the sugar until is caramelizes, closely monitoring the color. He then pours the syrup onto a pane of heated glass and as it cools he places another piece of glass on top. The glass "sandwich" is then sealed with silicone. The installation was part of the Light and Landscape exhibition at New York's Storm King Art Center that ran through November 11th, 2012.
