Infinity Doors by MAMIMU (June Mineyama-Smithson)
This window installation by MAMIMU at New Look prompts true optimism from its viewers by the artist's purposeful use of specific colours and movements to trigger optimism in our brains. The harmony within this window is found via the digital animation of doors opening and closing, revealing new lands and graphic spaces.
Infinity Doors invites people to embrace the unknown to step towards harmony, as our brains are flooded with optimism. When one door closes, another opens to reveal another graphic landscape, a metaphor for culture in Coventry for City of Culture.
Gensler, produced by RIBA West Midlands, at UK City of Culture Shop
The Show Windows programme is excited to be working with RIBA West Midlands to produce four windows in Coventry for City of Culture. The first of these four windows is by Gensler, a global superstar architect practice. Their window is a playful installation encouraging interaction and exploration of Coventry’s twinned city history. Coventry was the first city to ever be twinned with another, this innovation and awareness of linking people together is a reflection of the city, its citizens and of the power of art and architecture.
Here, Gensler invites audiences into the UK City of Culture Shop to move the blocks and create new stories or find new links (twins) within the work, whether it be colour combinations, words or places.
