Rendering, Veiled

This is a Rendering. It was designed by Jing Liu, Florian Idenburg, SO-IL and Ilias Papageorgiou and design team member: Ted Baab, Andre Herrero, Seunghyun Kang and Kevin Lamyuktseung. It is dated 2014. Its medium is digital print.

Veiled was conceptualized for the Greek Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Bienniale. It aimed to create a multi-sensory environment on an Aegean island. A mesh veil was designed to drape over a rocky valley on the island. This material would refract light, mitigate heat, and transform wind into a soundscape. This veil was intended to draw from nature in a manner consistent with sustainable practices, while heightening an awareness of place.
