Sweet Spot

Sweet Spot

Sweet Spot is on tour with Wonderspaces. The piece was in San Diego, California, for the summer of 2017. The next exhibit will be in Austin, Texas.

A meditation on color and the pleasure of seeing, Sweet Spot is an immersive installation made of 19 miles of thin multicolor nylon string hanging ceiling to floor through wood compartments. The movement of the viewer activates Sweet Spot as every change in perspective reveals new color harmonies. The strings seem to flicker and undulate as the eye moves. This effect compels the viewer to move slowly as the eye registers the ever-changing composition. The viewer may find their own 'sweet spot' of resonating color relationships as they relate one perspective to another. The work brings awareness to the act of seeing and looking.

Artists Shawn Causey and Mark Daniell made the piece in 2016 with a team of 84 volunteers in Indianapolis, Indiana. Sweet Spot was a Top 20 Public Vote Finalist at ArtPrize in 2016.
