Tully Arnot, Grass IRL 2015
Straws, modified solar display stands, light, motion
Dimensions variable (originally 6x6x1m)
"The work translates a hypercolour, mechanically swaying field of grass – which we might see in a video game or online – into a simple kinetic installation made from two readily available materials. Further, the work reflects on the natural relationship between plants and sunlight, digitising it into a circuit where each 'blade of grass' is powered by an individual solar panel." (Tully Arnot)
I'm also in love with Arnot's Lonely Sculpture (2014), "A simple sculpture exploring the effect of social media on human relationships".
