Sway’d’ Interactive Public Art Installation in Salt Lake City, Utah by Daniel Lyman

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Article source: Daniel Lyman

In its essence, the installation’s seemingly un-orchestrated subtle movements are reminiscent of a field of grass or trees reacting from the wind. Though each rod sways independently to its own rhythm, each individual maintains harmony with the whole; all swaying together in a symphony orchestrated by the supple forces of nature – no one part more important than the whole.

  • Project: Sway’d’ Interactive Public Art Installation
  • Location: Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Software used: Sketchup Pro and Photoshop to do the renderings, AutoCAD to create the technical drawings.

The habit for arranging the worshipping area with Qibla direction was continued to be organized in a square form. The surrounding for this square form should be a transparent “Glass Lantern”. So that an idea emerged to create a “glass prism” where the carrying blocks and surfaces are formed by the same material in which  the worshipping area will have an visual quality of the highest degree between the exterior day light and the worshipping area. In order to capture strong mystical ambiance, all the verses of the Quran were stamped on the transparent walls and ceiling surfaces.

The human race was no longer concerned with sustainability as a trend, because it could no longer deny the fact that the world was in fact dying.
