“Unexpected things are revealed in time-lapse or hyper-spectrum photography that fascinate me.”
The work has been created in collaboration with Now Art LA and AAV School as part of an ongoing outdoor exhibition series focusing on temporary installations. Liquid Shard has been designed to be viewed both from the ground looking up to the sky, and from the surrounding offices. Shearn hopes that the intervention allows viewers to slow down and observe the wind that slowly transforms the piece as it undulates and glistens in the air.
“Like fractals recurring progressively, we feel the currents of air on our skin but do not see the larger movements,” Shearn states. “I wanted to play in that realm with this technology I have been developing.”
