Metal In Bloom at M&A

Friday, November 18, 2011

Tomorrow LA gallery Materials and Applications will open the installation “Bloom,” a twisted sculpture (video of its installation above) whose metallic surface reacts to changes in temperature and sunlight. When the metal is cool, the surface looks like a solid object, but once heated the overlapping bi-metal panels (for you non techies, that’s panels made of two different types of metal pressed together) adjust and fan out to allow for air flow and increased shade. The best part is that if you’re lucky you can actually see, and hear, this change taking place. The structure, which rests on a steel frame in M&A’s courtyard, was designed by Doris Sung and Ingalill Wahlroos-Ritter with Matthew Melnyk. The opening will take place from noon to five on Saturday.
