LIGHT HOUSE I
Collaboration with Laura Sallade
glass, silver nitrate, maple, brass, milk paint, light diffusing acrylic, LEDs
16 x 30 x 24 in.
The ethereal quality of Sallade’s silvering work creates a striking focal point in McGlynn’s architectural design. The layered visuals of the piece are constantly changing due to manipulation of artificial lighting against the backdrop of daily variations of color and intensity of natural light. The result is an atmosphere of luxurious, expansive sky, while remaining connected to the architecture and viewer through a multitude of reflections.
The structure life-size would be 14 feet tall. The angled walls and ceiling are designed to reflect the light panels but keep them hidden from the viewer below, The viewer sees only the lit silvered design against the sky light behind.
