From some angles the wall appears to be organised in a pattern, but from other directions the surface seems distorted and irregular.
The rope is also tied around the framework of a bench, which protrudes from one side.
Oyler Wu Collaborative's previous projects include a moving installation for the LA Forum for Architecture and Urban Design and an aluminium staircase in the SCI-Arc gallery in Los Angeles.
The movie is by Them Too Productions.
Photographs are by Oyler Wu Collaborative and Clifford Ho.
Here's some more information from Oyler Wu Collaborative:
Screenplay by Oyler Wu Collaborative will be on view from 6/22 to 6/24 at Dwell on Design 2012 at LA Convention Center.
Screenplay is conceived of as a ‘play’ on one’s visual perception. This 21-feet-long screen wall is constructed of 45,000 feet of rope strung through a series of lightweight steel frames.
The wall is designed with the intention of provoking a sense of curiosity by slowly revealing its form and complexity through physical and visual engagement with the work.
The wall is made from a repetitious steel framework with rope infill that varies over the length of the wall in three dimensions, forming a thickened undulating screen made up of dense line-work. In its orthographic, or ‘straight on’ view, the wall forms a meticulously organised series of patterns easily recognised by the viewer.
As the viewer moves around the wall, its three-dimensional qualities reveal a more complex system of deep sectional cavities, twisting surfaces, and material densities.
The experience is meant to build on an ‘on again/off again’ system of pattern legibility, using optical effects as a means of provoking engagement in the work.
