Buzz Carpet by Janna van Hasselt for SCAPE Public Art Season 2016

Buzz Carpet

Buzz Carpet is an interactive ground mural which truly engulfs its site. A ludic tension between the planar and dimensional spaces creates a skin with an ambiguous sense of figure and ground. The pattern is derived from the stitches in crochet and mimics the makeup of surrounding building sites that form its backdrop. Visitors can engage directly with the piece on many different levels and will be dazed by its intense colour buzz.
