The PODS Series aims to act as a vehicle to engage the viewer with the various natural phenomena that surround us, defining our locations but are often overlooked and under-appreciated.
Light/Shadow is a 7’ in Diameter by 5’ high POD constructed with bent wood trusses, plywood and conventional lumber. The POD is tilted to maximize the play of the sun on the structure. The viewer can enter in two sides with the third open side covered with a crisscross of wooden pieces acting as a filter for light. As the time of day and weather changes, the experience of the pods changes. Direct sunlight creates beautiful crisp light/shadow play inside the pod, while angled sunlight causes the crisscrossed wooden elements to glow. Light/Shadow reengages us with the nuances of light in our surroundings.
