Our proposal begins with the idea of an abstracted vessel represented in sculptural form and then extends this notion to a transitory experience of place. The shape and form of the installation is evocative of the mast of a ship as it enters the harbour under a blanket of mist. These two concepts, ‘mast’ and ‘mist’, are distilled to their essential characteristics, manifested as a translucent architectural fabric sweeping upwards and over the skating island that is partially veiled by a digitally-patterned series of vertically mounted reflective ribs twisted to reveal and conceal the ‘mast’ depending on one’s position in relation to the central island. The reflective, polished finish of the aluminum ribs mirrors the surroundings of the skating rink, amplifying through reflection the activities of the public space.
