Roger Hiorns, A retrospective view of the pathway, 2008-17, Foam, compressor, and stainless steel tanks, Dimensions variable. Installation view, Atelier Calder, 2008

Hiorns’ interactive art piece is comprised of large-scale stainless-steel tanks, a compressor and foam, presenting the idea of continuous change in a joyous and ebullient manner. Every day at noon and 4:00pm, the sculpture will produce giant foam clusters, which will be shaped by the wind and spread across the landscape. In this way, the artist engages with the surroundings, and blurs the lines between where the city begins and the art ends. The public is welcome to engage with the interactive installation, with the foam becoming the connective tissue between the individual and the artwork.
