String Theory

Place: Charlottetown, PE
Program: Explorations/Installations
Year: 2018

Builder: Nine Yards Studio
Photographer: Alisha Maloney

An installation for the 2018 Art in the Open festival, String Theory is an architectural sculpture that utilizes wood and rope to create four triangular archways and parabolic vaults over a park path. During the day, sunlight permeates the strings, casting shadows that whimsically dance with the breeze. At night, the sculpture takes on an ethereal life as the fluorescent pink form glows in the darkness.

The rope provides tactile engagement as individuals are invited to strum the vaults like the strings of a harp. This tactile engagement creates vibrations that bring the sculpture to life.
