Leap of Faith

T

he concept behind the room was to create a space where the pure focus was the art, while at the same time connecting it to the rest of the house. This was accomplished by first removing all existing decorative accents, using neutral paint colors and adding a simple nonpatterned carpet. The space’s personality all comes from the art. Additionally, the feature element is the suspended sculpture titled “Sky Diver” by Moto Wanganari. Wanganari’s art is unique in that the shadow created is as much a part of the art as the sculpture. The purpose of the sculpture is to tie the very plain space to the rest of the home by its shadow, producing an aesthetic similar to the lead divided windows throughout the house.
