Yesterday, I shared some remarkable art made from some pretty uninspiring materials in Spare Parts. Today, I’ve found an artist who works in something even more ubiquitous and unexpected – chain link fencing.
Artist Soo Sunny Park has created this spectacular installation using 37 sections of fencing and thousands of plexiglass squares which send colorful patterns all over the room. The patterns shift with the sun, so that it’s a constantly-evolving light show all day long.
I really enjoyed watching her work in the video below. Somehow, she gets it all to hang together using nothing more stable or sophisticated than zip ties! I liked the other works showcased on her website, too, but this was the one that really grabbed me.
