Developed by the artists Shane Allbritton and Norman Lee of RE:Site, SECTIO AUREA features ‘folded’ ceramic steel panels to create a lenticular effect that changes with the viewer’s movement. Integrated with the soffit-wall architecture, the work would create an experience of discovery and surprise for viewers as they see the work from both outside and inside the library building.
Consisting of 331 art panels total, along 165 feet of elevated wall, the piece closely follows the architectural lines to acheive a tight relationship with the library space. Due to the angled ceiling, 175 panels have unique profiles that would not have been possible without the precision of digital modeling and fabrication. This formal precision, durability, and print quality was made possible through collaboration with Polyvision and their Ceremic Steel printed products.
