The Sphere 3D Spectrum
For the first time, Clifton Mahangoe has been able to interact with his work with the sun. During the day The Sphere 3D Spectrum absorbs sunlight and during the sunset, magic hour, the Sphere reflects 360° degrees on the quartz crystals. In this work, two opposites, sun and moonlight, come together as harmonious partners.
Mahangoe’s body of work consists of installations in which he accentuates great attention for stillness. The artist has a deep interest in spirituality, energies and the meditative effect of natural phenomena. His installations often depict intertwined images of running water, reflections, shadows and stars, and intend to have a mesmerising and soothing effect on the viewer.
In The Sphere 3D Spectrum, he masterfully applies technology to create a meditative experience for the audience, it brings stillness to the city: a moment of wonder and connection with each other. In the work, two opposites come together as harmonious partners. They form perfect circles surrounded by vibrations and spirals. In the projections, abstract dots and lines, images of sunlight, water reflections and swirling flocks of birds alternate.
