05 Jul Amuneal’s Collaboration with Sarah Sze Highlighted in Architectural Digest
Learn more about the “Ethereal Installation” that is “Transforming LaGuardia” in this Architectural Digest article which highlights the making of “Shorter than the Day,” Amuneal’s latest collaboration with New York Based installation artist Sarah Sze.
“A feat of engineering, her concept required a leap of faith on the part of LaGuardia Gateway Partners and Public Art Fund. To translate it from a drawn proposal into a structurally sound sculpture, Sze worked closely with longtime collaborators at Amuneal, the Philadelphia-based fabrication studio, devising an intricate system wherein small components appear woven, like twigs in a nest, creating the illusion of a floating sphere. While there was no welding done on-site, elements were added and subtracted to make sure the void properly appears and disappears from view. “It had to feel like a cloud—uneven but not unbalanced, teetering on a thread,” says Sze.”
