Melt, Splinter and Thread
- 23 October 2014 — 5 January 2015 *on now
Melt, Splinter and Thread are three new animated sculptural light works by artist Esther Rolinson made from acrylic, fibre optics and programmed LEDs.
Developed through drawing and model making, the installations are evocative of disintegrating structures and create unfolding vistas of landscapes in motion. Splinter and Thread will be exhibited until early December, followed by Melt until 5 January.
Rolinson makes complex animated forms and drawings in public spaces and galleries that draw the audience into a close physical world, conjuring imagined energetic events.
