More than 2000 meters of tulle went into creating Benjamin Shine’s art installation at the Canberra Centre in Australia. Titled The Dance, the works feature male and female portraits and a series of dancers. The fabric is hung from the ceiling so that wisps of color seemingly flow downward. Meanwhile, the back-lighting of the wall illuminates the artwork from behind.
“This series of tulle works is trying to capture the energy of the dance,” Shine said in a video showing his process. “Through the colors combining and converging together, that energy is manifesting momentarily. . . It’s this idea that through creativity, we are formed, and then we go on to create things, and dance represents that.” [h/t mymodernmet.com]
