In the outdoor plaza in front of Taipei Fine Arts Museum, a structure of scaffolding and mesh beckons passersby within the folds of its flowing fabric and swirling mist. Mist Encounter is an installation project designed by Serendipity Studio and Kuan-Wei Chen Architects, created with the goal of showing people how invisible air currents constantly interact with our bodies and movements.
Using a water mist system, the installation gives unseen airflow visible shape. As the mist drifts through and around the draped textiles, unrestricted by the boundaries of the square aluminum frame, it’s difficult to discern where the installation ends and begins. The free-flowing mist continuously takes on new forms – transforming based on the sun’s position and the wind’s intensity – to create different experiences for visitors throughout the day.
Mist Encounter is one of the many inspiring participants that blur the line between art and design in the 2018 Golden Pin Design Award. This year’s call for entries will end on June 28 at 5 pm (GMT+8). Visit the Golden Pin Design Award website for more details.
