Art in the Sky: PIXEL PLANES

Sculpture #3 PIXEL PLANES

Metal-reinforced fiberglass, airbrushed-painted with automotive lacquer paints

"Ever wondered what happens inside the virtual world? It’s like playing hide and seek with countless colored pixels appearing, lost and reappearing in layers upon layers of virtual planes, axes and quadrants as new images are formed by just a click of the mouse." 


This whole public art piece composed of four free-standing vertical sculptures arranged in a way to reveal four quadrants creates another interesting visual effect. This is made possible by the rectangular apertures in various sizes with sides carefully painted in different attractive colors. The planar sides of each sculpture piece are painted in an alternate manner showing the smooth gradation from black to white starting from either the bottom or the top.

The whole idea is to catch the attention of people to the instantaneous changing of colors in the shape of pixels alternately revealed or hidden as the viewer walk around this piece of public art. It is to provoke an intriguing thought of how one might possibly feel as he/she literally and physically enters the virtual world.

Each aperture could also serve as nice frame for a close-up photo of a friend's face, the whole family posing at a distance or the surrounding landscape.
