This interactive sculptural installation commissioned for the Woodruff Art Center’s Carroll Slater Sifly Piazza is a kaleidoscope of color, light and reflection designed by Rotterdam-based Studio Sabine Marcelis. Consisting of four rotating glass pillars, Panorama will reflect light, scenery, and the urban environment of the Piazza by pulling light into a de-saturated space to generate colorful reflections and increase the visual impact of the work. By entering the space between the pillars as they rotate, visitors are given a seamless visual experience that offers a different perspective of their surroundings. The installation will literally and metaphorically reflect the sun, transforming perceptions and injecting warmth into the experience of entering the piazza.

The installation presents a new dimension for Studio Sabine Marcelis, as it’s the designer’s first monumental and kinetic work that embraces dynamism through movement. Known for working with elements like light and glass, Marcelis has fused her work in spatial design with the High’s mission to present interactive activations, resulting a unique installation that speaks to her continued innovation and manipulation of materials.
