Parallax Gap at the Renwick Gallery

Climb the stairs to the Renwick's Grand Salon then look up to discover the latest transformation of the ceiling. Inspired by architectural drawings of nine historic buildings, architecture design firm FreelandBuck has created a many-layered, lacy installation that starts with traditional one and two point perspective then skews it. The "drawings" were cut from fabric, stretched on frames then suspended, one above another like a stack of airy, floating pancakes. In some spots, you can see the "normal" architectural view. The overlapping colors and forms change as you move around the room. The installation will be on view through February 11, 2018. Learn more about its creation here:
