Niamh Barry, Tilted Head II, IRE, 2016

Tilted Head II is based on a study of human embrace and its movement. Made with Niamh Barry’s signature hand-formed bronze rings, the piece features opal glass tiles covering LED light strips that emit a perennial warm glow. Experienced differently from every angle at which the viewer stands, Tilted Head II not only comments upon our movement, but elicits our movement around the very piece.  The pictured light sculpture is the second version of Tilted Head, created within Niamh Barry’s commission-based program.  A bespoke version of this piece may be made to order with custom dimensionality and finishes.
