SOO-SUNNY PARK

These three artists all use dichroic glass in their artwork/architecture. Most of it is very geometric in style, utilising flat surfaces to create angular and reflective works that change colour when it or the viewer moves. The exception to this is Soo-Sunny Park, who has created a billowing cloud of small squares of iridescent glass, held together with wire.

I want to know how these effects look on curved shapes, and non flat surfaces.

Another thing that I love about all of these is the inclusion of light in their work; either sunlight or directed light at their work has a major influence on how it looks. The coloured shadows on the walls and floor, and the heightened pigment in the glass make for a beautiful work of art.
