Liquid Shard was an installation in downtown LA that was on view for two weeks created by Patrick Shearn of Poetic Kinetics. The undulating piece featuring suspended¬†holographic mylar and monofilament arranged in a long ribbon-like canopy in Pershing Square¬†and measured 15,000 square feet in length. According to Hearn – “The inspiration comes from observing nature and the feeling that we are only aware on a very surface level of what is really going on around us. Unexpected things are revealed in time-lapse or hyper-spectrum photography that fascinate me. Like fractals recurring progressively, we feel the currents of air on our skin but do not see the larger movements.”
