On View: Soo Sunny Park’s “Unwoven Light” at Rice Gallery
Interested in transporting her viewers into otherworldly realms, Soo Sunny Park builds installations that manipulate light to transform architectural spaces. The artist recently built her latest installation, Unwoven Light at Rice University’s Rice Gallery in Houston. Composed of 37 individual sculptural units, the installation uses iridescent plexi-glass embedded in pieces of a chain link fence to cast shimmering, colorful reflections across the spacious gallery. The fence-like wire loses its industrial qualities, becoming the framework for something closer to bubbles or butterfly wings. Take a look at some photos by Nash Baker of the installation and check out a video interview by Walley Films with Soo Sunny Park below. “Unwoven Light” is on view at Rice Gallery through August 30.
