Sweet Spot

Shawn Causey and Mark Daniell


A meditation on color and the pleasure of seeing, Sweet Spot is a shimmering color installation of 3700 thin multicolor nylon cords hanging ceiling to floor through handmade wood compartments. There are 19 miles of cord in the piece, which was handmade in Indianapolis with a team of 80 volunteers contributing 1000 hours.   The motion of the viewer activates the piece as every change in perspective reveals new color harmonies. The flickering effect compels the viewer to slow down as the eye registers shifts in color. The viewer may find their own 'sweet spot' of resonating color relationships as they relate one perspective to another.

Shawn Causey and Mark Daniell live and work in Indianapolis.  They focus on using low tech materials to explore color harmonies that are activated by viewer movement.  You can learn more about them and their work on Facebook or Instagram.
