Suspended sea of delicate silver strands ripples over Pershing Square casting moving shadows over pedestrians who pass below. The exhibit is part of an on-going effort by the city of Los Angeles to support public art displays.
The “Liquid Shard” art installation, made from holographic mylar and monofilament, stretches 15,000 sq ft. across the park, rises and falls like a mystical giant through the wind. With two layers its looking like separate waves that moves with the wind from four meters above ground to a height of 35 metres.
Designed and made by Patrick Shearn, the new installation has become an instant hit of the artist, mesmerizing downtown residents, office workers and tourists with its large waves of delicate silver streamers rippling in the sky above Perishing Square in Los Angeles.
Shearn worked on the piece with 12 students who were attending a design workshop in Los Angeles.
