Virus – The Beauty Within The Chaos
Virus – the beauty within the chaos – is an exploration of humanity and connection, for good or ill.
The imposing 3m tall Virus is an interactive steel sculpture based on a compounded dodecahedron and icosahedron with an open doorway, forming a seating area for either isolated contemplation or very close conversation. Comprising of friendly and familiar homely objects, 11 tables & 18 lounge chairs, that can be disassembled and dispersed, it speaks to the paradoxical role of dissemination – the sharing of resources versus the spread of disease, for example.
As we unpack what it means to be human – virus, cure, both or neither. It becomes ever clearer that we are part of the whole. Part of the problems & solutions of the past, present and future.
Virus pays homage to the revival of an appreciation for the home, community and connection. Simultaneously, exposing the impact of our ‘humanity’ on the earth & one another. Now, as isolation goes viral, we ask the question: ‘What does a meaningful and beautiful future look like?’ and ‘What is our role in it?’
This stainless steel furniture sculpture is 3000 x 3000 x 3000mm in size.
