Rebecca Baumann: Radiant Flux
Time Out says
Step into a kaleidoscope of colour at Carriageworks
Carriageworks has been home to its fair share of large-scale artworks in recent years, including Nick Cave's monumental 'Until' and Daniel Buren's playground of oversized kids' toys. But Rebecca Baumann's 'Radiant Flux' reaches even further, turning the Redfern arts wonderland into a giant kaleidoscope of colour.
For the installation, she's covered every glass surface of the main Carriageworks foyer – including the skylights – in dichroic film, a material that reflects and refracts light in a range of different colours, which evolve as the viewer moves and the light changes. Altogether, there's be more than 100 metres of glass wrapped with the film.
'Radiant Flux' will be open from January 8 until June 14. It's one of four major artworks commissioned by Carriageworks opening for Sydney Festival, transforming the galleries and performance spaces, each of them engaging with the architecture or history of the site.
