AiRx: Angles of Incidence

SIF-BC AiRx 2013/2014 brings together Singapore artist-architect Randy Chan and British artist Philippa Lawrence to create a site‐specific collaborative work Angles of Incidence at the Singapore Botanic Gardens from 14 January to 23 March 2014.  

Angles of Incidence comprises a family of reflective multi-faceted steel structures, some of which patterned with crystal elements, placed beneath the canopy of an 80-year old Kapok tree to create a dynamic relationship between the installation and its environment. Visitors will experience the oscillation between the installation and nature as the reflective installation merges into and emerges from the landscape. 

The choice of site creates a dynamic relationship between the installation and its environment.
