No object, of nature or of art, exists without environment. As a matter of fact, the object itself can expand to a degree where it becomes its own environment…
The traditional art object, be it a painting, a sculpture, a piece of architecture, is no longer seen as an isolated entity but must be considered within the context of this expanding environment.
The environment becomes equally as important as the object, if not more so, because the object breathes into the surrounding and also inhales the realities of the environment no matter in what space, close or wide apart, open air or indoor.
Fredrick Kiesler, Inside the Endless House
This quote is exemplified wonderfully by this temporary installation piece. The pictures taken in London, England, not sure the year? Probably 1988 or so. I didn’t stay long enough to see what was under wraps. But what an engaging piece, don’t you think?
The tall white spire in the background of the photograph is St. Martin-in-the-Fields, which is in Trafalgar Square.
