“Proximity," embraces principles of order and chaos. Arranged carefully in the lobby of 5 Manhattan West in a geometrical pattern that creates a larger system, each mechanical unit with attached solar panels develops its own individuality through the dynamic interplay between position, and levels of sunlight, artificial light, and shadows. Using visual phenomena as an allegory for the cyclical nature of life, light, and routines, the work creates a meditative and contemplative space through its movement and sound.
Material: Motors, solar cells, glass, LED.
