Missing Julie Frame Installation by Naai-Jung Shih

Home > Winners > #63771


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Missing Julie

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Frame Installation

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration came from the symbol of wishes and tears. It is an expression while people looking out of a frame to wait for someone to return. Various types and sizes of glass spheres are used as a symbol of wishes and tears to imply the emotion that possible hides inside.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The steel frame symbolizes the presence of an eye as defining the boundary of emotion. The boxes are containers for different parts of memory. The emotion given by a person can be different from the way it is perceived. Different types of glass spheres are perfect to serve this purpose. The outdoor scenes are distorted and oriented upside down as look from the other side of the glass spheres. The springs are eyelashes as for the representation of eyes with the combination of glass spheres.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Put this installation in front of a window panel or in an open field and you can see it changes as the weather changes. The transparency of spheres is clear enough to illustrate it. This installation can also be placed in front of a white wall where sunshine can reach to project different transparent levels of shadows onto the wall.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started in 2016 in Taipei Taiwan, with a long period of time in collecting design components from local flea market.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This installation was made by manual assembly. The proposed locations were photo-montaged with background photos taken by myself.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
50cm(width) x 30cm(depth) x 70cm(height)

TAGS:
frame installation, lights and shadows, transparency, emotion, eyes, metaphor, landscape

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A study of lights and shadows was made before. A conclusion was made for the best result comes from transparent or semi-transparent materials. The shape or layers of transparent objects can be well-organized in order to contribute a desirable final effect.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge had twofold as in metaphor and in creation process. The metaphor has to use flea market collection of glass spheres for different appearances. The symbolization of moving eyes was made by springs as eyelashes in different curves and orientations for distinguishing gestures. The production has to keep the balance of weight and transparency. The bubble-like spheres need to be like floating in the air. Several versions were made with or without frames. Even small modules of frame and glass ball were developed.
