Artist Kit Kube, Charlotte, NC
Steel, LED lights
Kit Kube recycles industrial artifacts harvested from local scrap yards. He used two, six foot stainless steel sieves and converted the 24" diameter cylinder into a mobile and the 36" diameter cylinder into a stabile. Architects with Neighboring Concepts designed a contemporary facility to integrate the artist's work that includes blank surfaces to receive and display patterns created by the artificial and natural light passing through the sculptures. Light fixtures incorporated by the artist transform the mobile and stabile into lanterns at night. Titled Constructive Interference, the two sculptures in conjunction with the steel, translucent roof panels and contemporary facility demonstrate a seamless combination of art and architecture.
