Bridge and Platige Image created a physical space manifesto for new offices of Platige Image. Platige Image’s work in animation and post-production blurs boundaries between creativity and technology. The installation is a spatial canvas ready to display creative content from artists working at Platige and to engage visitors too. It was designed to be a living organism in the lobby space and take an active part in company’s everyday life.
This project, Wonder Wall, is located at the intersection between architectural and graphic form. It explores the large-scale visual effects that can be produced when two-dimensional graphic patterns are translated into three-dimensional constructions. Specifically, Wonder Wall translates a swatch of tartan fabric into a gyrating wall made out of interlocked strips of perforated colored aluminum. The intersecting vertical and horizontal strips of aluminum gently twist to form a 9’x9’x1’-8” grid with multiple overlapping conditions. As the aluminum overlaps, new colors begin to emerge and a gradient field of porous openings rotates in relationship to the viewer. Wonder Wall slips between two and three dimensions into a space of 2.5D where visual effects emerge from the specificities of material construction.
