Abbeywood Shopping Centre, Bristol

Digitally printed glass facade and dichroic glass fins

This public art project stands at the entranceway to the external shopping plaza outside Bristol. The digitally printed glass facade is over 230 sqm. It features an image captured from the bridge over the railway that runs adjacent to the plaza itself. The seventeen dichroic glass fins are 4.5m long with a convex curve. The work changes throughout the day, responding dramatically to direct sunlight during the day and to the down-lighters located in the soffit at night time.
