RCA student’s sculpture comprises four layers of open framed boxes suspended at different heights
Royal College of Art fine art graduate Jackie Brown's art installation has been unveiled at cost consultant EC Harris’ headquarters in London.
It was commissioned to celebrate the firm’s first anniversary at its office in York Way.
Called ‘little boxes’, the installation was selected from a shortlist of designs by students at the London post graduate college.
Brown’s installation comprises four layers of open framed boxes suspended at different heights and angles from the ceiling of the building’s atrium.
Brown said: “In my mind’s eye I pictured these little sculptures during my first visit to EC Harris’ offices.
“The atrium offered a fantastic opportunity for a suspended sculpture and I wished for a piece that divided this large space without attempting to fill it with a solid mass.”
Mike Smith was chosen to fabricate and install the sculpture. His other work includes ‘cloud’ a 5m long sculpture, commissioned by British Airways, which hangs outside the entrance to the executive lounges at Terminal 5.
Richard Clare, EC Harris chairman, said: “We particularly liked the see-through nature of Jackie’s design, in that it enriches the atrium space rather than dominating it or cutting down its important views.
“The shapes, which can be seen from all angles, change in different light conditions.”
