Light Sculpture


tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE
New York, NY

Media: LEDs, diffusion material, vinyl, custom lighting sequence, electrical hardware

Dimensions: 15 ft x 9 ft x 26 in

Uros is part of a series of light sculptures by Grimanesa Amorós. The sculpture is Amorós' interpretation of the floating Uros Islands in Puno, Peru.

For Issey Miyake's Tribeca headquarters store, Amorós has multiplied and arranged these units into structures that are monumental in scale yet weightless in appearance. Illuminated by technologically ingenuous LED custom lighting sequence, the installation's color schemes and intensities continuously transform: at times the work seems buoyant and ethereal, while at other times it appears as solid mass.

tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE is the site for the Miyake US headquarters and flagship store carrying all Issey Miyake collections and featuring a titanium "intervention" or sculpture by Frank Gehry.
