Niamh Barry’s Binary references a system of two objects in space so close that their gravitational interaction causes them to orbit about a common center of mass. Made with Barry’s signature hand-formed bronze rings, the piece features opal glass tiles covering a strips of LED lights that emit a perennial warm glow. Experienced differently from every angle at which the viewer stands, Binary not only suggests movement, but also elicits the viewer’s own movement around the work. The pictured light sculpture is the first of the Binary series, created within Niamh Barry’s commission-based program. A bespoke version of this piece may be made to order with custom dimensionality and finishes. Please contact [email protected] for details and pricing.
Niamh Barry was born in 1968 in Dublin, Ireland, where she still works and lives. In 1991, upon graduation from the National College of Art and Design, Barry established her studio and started to create unique conceptual furniture and light sculptures from a range of materials including aluminum, porcelain, linen, mirror, and acrylic as well as wood, black patinated hand-formed solid bronze, mirror-polished solid bronze, and Murano glass. In her signature works, visual weight and movement are constant themes. All custom pieces are available with dimmable LED lighting. Barry’s work is included in many public and private collections nationally and internationally, including the Four Seasons Hotel, O2, Candy and Candy, the Merrion Hotel, the Shelbourne Hotel, Finchatton, and U2’s own collection.
