Architect Bates Smart and client PMP Limited, a media production and magazine distribution company, requested a three-dimensional, textural, dramatically uplit installation to add pizzazz to a two-story reception area wall in the firm’s Melbourne headquarters.
emerystudio responded with an abstract piece that refers to streams of digital information and the notion of a performance indicator, “a visual representation of the transition from chaos to order.” Small fragments of the 23- by 26-ft. piece—made from humble MDF—are placed throughout the office.
The negative “waste” sheet material remaining after the sculpture was cut out and used in primary locations can also be used for alternative installations in secondary locations. Call it abstract branding.
