I am currently working on a public art commission.
this is a Percent for Art commission for a public art project. Specifically, for a new Police Station House in the Bronx.
Bjarke Ingles Group is building the station-house, and I have been asked to make an art intervention along the perimeter of a fence that is going to run for a considerable portion of the exterior area. The artwork is meant to soften the facade of the precinct while helping to promote positive community interaction. I am envisioning working off the fence as substrate and morphing the material to look like a quilt-like organic surface that will protrude and retract in convex and concave shapes to provide seating or perching for community members and passers-by.
I would like to use the fence's very material to be woven and treated to become reflective so that the weaving can mirror the environment and community members alike, creating a kaleidoscopic effect of reflected fragments - I am currently in the conceptual phase of the project and now need to translate the concept sketches into rhino drawings for my next presentation and for the fabricators -
I have the spec drawings of the fence on which I am to implement the intervention provided by the architects, and a series of conceptual sketches that need to be translated into technically accurate rhino or cad drawings for fabrication.
The sculpture ultimately has to be structurally stable and also function as a bench.
I am willing to pay higher rates for the most experienced freelancers
