Two new Works for Queen Mary University of London by Giulia Ricci
Artist Giulia Ricci has created two new Works for the School of Mathematical Sciences building at Queen Mary University of London.
‘Parallel/Bend (Folding)’ was drawn directly by the artist on to the walls and columns of the undergraduate study area over a period of several weeks. The Work responds to the main external feature of the building, the Penrose tiling wrap, creating a link between the inside and outside of the building.
The second Work, ‘Order/Disruption (Windows)’ has been created for the glazing of the public areas of level 6 and is inspired by the arrival of the first computer at Queen Mary University in 1967 celebrating the past and present of the building.
Developed following discussions with the staff in the department, the Work that came from these dialogues is abstract with the dots referring to punched cards that were used in early computers, contrasting ideas of order and disruption.
Giulia Ricci was commissioned by Queen Mary University of London as part of the major refurbishment of School of Mathematical Sciences Building.
