Ryan Van Der Hout
The Looking Glass - tall, bright, geometric abstracted steel and glass sculpture

2021

US$19,000

About

The Looking Glass is as much a sculpture as a light installation. The sculpture references the many trajectories of cosmic planets in motion. The shadows cast by the glass chart their own path throughout the day as they circle the sculptural space. With a background in photography, Van Der Hout's sculptural works reference the photographic medium, specifically the elements of light and motion. Motion is evoked in the structure of the sculptures and light is cast through the sculpture's many lenses, traveling across the ground throughout the day as the sun moves. The resulting work is meant to be experienced both in space and time. As you walk around it, the colours combine in new and delightful ways, and the colourful shadows it casts change as the sun rises and sets. The sculptures can be lit at night from multiple directions to turn any location into a light installation. This sculpture is also available in varying sizes and colours by commission.
