A Thousand Skies By Suzann Victor
17 Aug to 25 Aug
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
A Thousand Skies is a nomadic pavilion with an urban vision to provide local communities with a broad ownership of use, whichever city it pops up in.
The “heart” of the artwork marks out a public space that invites audiences to be viewers and to become the “art” within the artwork — by becoming live presenters of their own artistic talent. This intimate enclosure is formed by unique soft architecture of transparent lenses distinctively assembled to transform the way we see and experience the city’s surrounding environment.
Informal and engaging, the installation engenders human connection and meaning-making across our multiple cultures and demographics.
