Description

Jeppe Hein’s "Follow Me" and Anish Kapoor’s "Cloud Gate" utilize enlarged scaling and reflective materials to alter assumed perspective which creates a transition between the immediate environment of the piece and its surrounding space. Among art media, sculpture stands out because it is viewed in three-dimensions while remaining static. Through space manipulation by increased scale and perception-altering material these sculptors successfully create new worlds through their installations. This allows sculpture to deviate from painting’s two-dimensionality providing an alternative art experience. Hein and Kapoor aim to provide an interactive experience for viewers and space to formulate new environments.
