Marion Borgelt’s ‘Musical Spheres’ is an artist-led team of disciplines involving Artist, Architect, Industrial Designer and Mechanical Engineer
A strong project team is crucial to unlock the full force of creative potential. A true collaboration is founded on trust and can achieve remarkable outcomes.
Tilt is privileged to be part of an amazing project team for a public art commission titled “Musical Spheres” for Sydney’s Angel Place at 123 Pitt Street- Managed by AMP Capital.
Currently in Design, the site-specific kinetic sculpture transforms the entry of the building into a playful and continuously changing field of colour.
Echoing the action of hammers hitting piano strings and the movement of musical notes on a score, this kinetic work is a dynamic contrapuntal coloured musical forms.
The circular forms slowly move up and down, playing the air, complementing the constant movement of people in and out of the space; referencing music through movement rather than sound.
This action references the movement of hammers hitting piano strings and the music making history of the site
The creative project team worked together to develop the early stage submissions, ensuring all of the artistic, architectural and construction considerations were thoroughly addressed.
A balanced submission that considers not only artistic intent, but architectural, construction, installation and budgetary criteria ensuring that risk is mitigated, and the likelihood of success is increased.
