This proposal for a large hanging art installation was developed in London by Allie Dailey/BAM, Martha Schwartz, and Neil Thomas (structural engineer and Atelier One founder). Neil brought on the engineer David Wiley, who not only helped us understand the aerodynamic behavior of our design, but he also took it upon himself to build a fan blade prototype! Our artist-competitors were the great Pipilotti Rist, Jenny Holzer, and Yayoi Kusama.
Nature Pixels is a physical abstracted gestalt of romantic nature. Placed in the heart of Sydney, the installation invokes our innate longing for a more fundamental connection to the natural world.
