Tonya Hart, Towers for a Beam, 2020
Microscopes all share the same principle pattern based on the dispersion and convergence of information. Refraction, reflection and diffraction of light are all means of manipulating perception to render the invisible visible to reveal a new dimension of perception. This dispersion pattern and convergence of information is also evident in its design. "Towers for a Beam" is an installation of thirteen suspended sculptures based on the structural design of microscopes for the front entrance of Artist Project 2020. The installation invites viewers to explore each unique sculpture based on sight and perspectives before moving on to the diverse range of artistic styles, mediums and perspectives viewers will encounter in the Artist Project.
