Melt2 is constructed from architectural screen fabric to create changing layers of opacity, like standing inside the layers of a drawing, as simple geometries open and close around the viewer. Melt2 is animated using complex lighting behaviors. As the viewer walks through, a maze of diagonal planes, complex views and compositions illuminate and fade around them.
Melt2 was developed as part of the series Melt, Splinter and Thread over a two year studio practice and research period with the assistance of Dave Everit, Artist Programmer Sean Clark and Dr Graeme Stuart.
