Art Basel Miami Beach, FL

Commissioned by the Mondrian South Beach

“Somewhere Over the Rainbow” was a colorful experience created with the intention of transcending the viewer to an enhanced state of happiness and self-healing, physical manifestation of the rainbow spectrum- transforming ideas and emotion into a colorful, translucent, toy-like inflatable world that colorizes the environment and its participants. Each piece is a symbolic reference to the human emotional spectrum. With each color corresponding to a different emotion, varying in meaning upon each visitor’s personal point of view, the viewer is urged to reflect on their inner state. The viewer could physically experience the color spectrum and how that connected to their emotions. Spanning from the combination of colors (white), representing life, to the absence of color (black), representing death, the artists portrayed the organic rebirth pattern taking place in both our psyche and physical world, reminding us to play and interact on a deeper, subconscious level. Inspired by the Light and Space movement of the 60s and 70s, we explored geometric shapes and how the use of light can affect the environment and our perception and we encouraged the viewer to move around the installation to see how these works shift in understanding as one changes perspective. At times, the works appeared as solid forms and at others, they seem to be dissolving into the environment. The totems were meant to not only alter space but also induce feeling. Using human traits, such as eyes, tie to the implied animism within our works, and gave a spiritual essence and sense of life to the entire exhibition. Taking place in an intimate outdoors space facing Biscayne Bay, the abundance of the Miami sunlight cast spectral shadows on the visitors of the Mondrian.
