This site-specific window installation explores the interaction between earth, water and light by featuring three distinct planes of colour which emerge from a single point. The main blue zone is formed by a metallic enclosure of corrugated perforated panels that represents falling rain. In the middle of its path, three raincoats in colour progression shelter the individual from the rain, evoking a multicoloured spectrum of light caused by reflection of light in water droplets.
The tension between the seen and the unseen is particularly evident inside the window display where the volume of solid colours surfaces and corrugated perforated metal sheets toy with light and space in a journey of optical illusion.
The result is an optimistic landscape on a rainy day which highlights the shape, quality and colours of the product.
Working with super local production methods, all the structural elements used for 'Ura - Landscape’ will be reused for future projects. The aluminium of metal sheets contains 90% recycled material, a stretch textile fabric framing system has been used as paintings and the triangular-frame structures will be transformed into garment display racks.
