Yeseul Song: Invisible Sculpture On Wheels

at The Six Foot Platform

The intersection of Washington and Water Street becomes the setting for a new project: the Six Foot Platform Experimental Residency Program. Presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Arts Council, this project will feature eleven Brooklyn-based artists in full-day residencies on Saturdays throughout the summer.

“Invisible Sculpture On Wheels” is an experiential multi-sensory sculpture by Yeseul Song, installed on a cart. The sculpture isn’t visually discernible, yet has a spatial form and occupies space. The viewer can perceive the sculpture through sound feedback that responds to their hand gesture and movement. As the sound changes, the audience senses the boundaries of the sculpture’s form.

After the experience, they’ll be invited to make physical versions of the sculpture using a handful of clay (individually wrapped to avoid Covid concerns). The “visible” sculptures made by the participants will become a collective perception of the invisible sculpture celebrating individual differences and diversity of human perceptions while questioning the idea of “normal” and “truth”. Will everyone see the same sculpture? Sound design collaboration with Jesse Simpson.
