You may notice a little ‘pardon our dust’ beginning this week in the Efroymson Entrance Pavilion of the IMA. Heather Rowe’s installation, Tenuous Arrangements has left the building. In case you missed it, check out her talk on ArtBabble below:
What’s coming to take it’s place? Architecture and design fans, rejoice! Los Angeles-based design team Ball-Nogues Studio will create an immersive, site-specific installation called Gravity’s Loom.
The space will be filled with multicolored strings configured in catenary curves, arcs naturally assumed by the strings as they respond to the force of gravity. Trained as architects, Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues are working with the pavilion’s architecture to develop an installation related to the function of the space as a thoroughfare and meeting point for visitors.
