Ten thousand metres of coloured yarn were used to create artist Lee Baker’s amazing installation work Refractive Monolith. Commissioned by The Future Tense for its ‘SPECTRA I’ exhibition at the end of 2011, the installation utilizes the corner of the gallery to display vibrant acrylic strands creating a three dimensional reaction to his paintings. Baker explains the installation as the quest to use “vivid colour and extreme perspectives to ‘build’ fantastical meta-cities against a stormy backdrop of ashen clouds and pending darkness”.
