Church of St. Martin in the Fields, from Trafalgar Square, London, is the home of a surprising abstract style, distinctive to the location that abruptly warps a huge church window into a visually peculiar model. In charge of the venture was the talented visual artist, Shirazeh Houshiary, born in Shiraz, Iran. Recalling a cross, the 2 the horizontal and vertical lines appear to be endlessly moving in direction of a median aperture that allows the sun to illuminate the interior. With its ne2rk like notion, it reunites elements from religion with the intricate development aiming to form a monochrome, a single-of-a-type spectacle, to celebrate light. Every evening the ellipse is insidiously lit and increases with the fading light creating a robust visual result seen the 2 inside and out.
The richness of organic light insinuated through the etched glass and steel fret work gave the task light with the sole function to permanently replace a window shattered by bombs during Planet War II, to “successfully animate the light”. When speaking about her perform, Houshiary explains:“the universe is in a method of disintegration. Every little thing is in a state of erosion, and yet we consider to stabilise it. This tension fascinates me and it’s at the core of my work.”
