This illuminated arch rises up out of the water and surrounds a foot bridge in Austin, Texas
East Side Collective, a co-working design studio featuring co-founder Tim Derrington and member Wilson Hanks, along with Drophouse Design have recently worked together to create a temporary installation as part of the Waller Creek Conservancy’s “Creek Show“, in Austin, Texas.
“Deep Curiosity” is an illuminated arch that rises up out of the water and surrounds a foot bridge over the Waller Creek to create the illusion of a never ending circle that inspires imaginative thought and an appreciation for both the natural and man-made elements found in and around the same area.
The light installation is made from strips of curved steel that have been welded and formed into a curved arch.
The arch is made up of sections that were constructed in a warehouse and were later assembled on site in the water and above the bridge.
The partially submerged circular form combines reality with the power of illusion to encourage people to think about and appreciate the complexity of the creek and celebrate the possibility of future perfection in the Waller Creek area.
