Martin Richman: We Could Meet
2015 | acrylic, fibre optics, electronics | Crossrail Place, Quayside (exterior) | Art Map reference: 53
Martin Richman is interested in how art can improve the quality of life in cities, humanising and helping to give locations a sense of place. We Could Meet consists of a grid of over 500 illuminated acrylic rods installed in the water channel and visible from above.
They are programmed so that it changes colour and frequency throughout the day and evening. As the lights change colour, the juxtapositions of our colour perception change as well – red in a field of blue appears different to the same red in an orange field.
