Flurries is composed of small, sculptural pieces randomly mounted on the windows and walls of the Vradenburg Café. Cast in urethane, a clear synthetic material, in the shape of "cap"-in mathematics, the area of a sphere above or below a given plane-the pieces are arranged in the space to induce a visual progression from order to disorder. Of the same volume and tint yet of different depths and sizes, the caps are translucent objects reflecting their backgrounds: the ones on the walls suggest a constellation of stars, while those on the windows provide a view of the outside world in reverse.
Intersections is a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises.
Many of the projects also riff on the nontraditional nature of the museum's galleries, sometimes activating spaces that are not typical exhibition areas with art produced specifically for those locations.
Intersections is supported by Phillips International Forum members.
