BEND by The Marc Boutin Architectural Collaborative Inc.The Forks Winnipeg, Manitoba
Architecture, Design — Other
Bend hangs on the convergence of two visual planes – the sky and the earth. Through an aggregation of mirrors, the two resulting sheets of reflection serve to create a new virtual plenum – a third and alternative visual space. While our expression of the physical ‘garden’ is contained, the installation’s inherent celebration of negative space projects an open-ended image – an extension of the horizon. Subject to the time of day, the movement of the clouds, and seasonal conditions, we hope that visitors will be treated to an ephemeral experience, and alternative sense of vision.
Cool Gardens is a public exhibition of contemporary garden and art installations offering a shift of sensation for the summer—cooling—as a general theme.
