Frick Collection, New York / Garden Installation and Gala Dinner We developed a presentation, a narrative-based introduction to the ideas behind this installation and event. This event at the Frick comprised an installation in the Garden Court followed by dinner in the West and East Gallery and Oval room.
The Garden Court fountain was the main focal point, our installation veiling the fountain and through layering, casting shadows, texture, and tone. This was directly linked to Great Dixter Garden in the UK through sound recordings. All of this acted as a backdrop to the monochrome and contrasting spaces.
This installation provoked a moment of great drama as the guests arrived for dinner and was designed to remain at the Frick for a period after the gala evening.
Yorkshire Sculpture Park / Play and WanderThis was a collaborative process; front-ending, brainstorming, setting out new narratives through imagery and illustration, developing our initial ideas.
Play and Wander involved re-zoning the car park in front of Bretton Hall for the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The existing path would remain and retain the breakout space, hustle and bustle, whilst site zoning challenged the idea of densely populating the area in front of the café.
We played with scale, colour, and texture to create a rhythm and sense of space whilst also revealing unexpected moments with new planting. This planting would draw walkers in and reveal the wonderland beyond. Crossing thick areas of trees - Reveal - to discover clusters of trees and planting - Wander.
Yorkshire Sculpture Park / New Trails and Dwelling PointsFor this we created an introductory image presentation to suggest a New Trail around Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We wanted to conceptually question the various ways to Dwell, how we lean, dangle, balance, sit, lie, wait, listen, look across and up. We then transformed these questions and ideas into Dwelling Structures with different vantage points.
These new Dwelling Points provided everything from shelter for picnics to new vistas of the landscape and sculptures. We also proposed contrasting and textured material to be integrated into the landscape, whose patina would be enhanced when exposed to the elements.
