The Fixed Spans art installation makes use of the open atrium at City Hall and the shifting perspectives of this civic space.
PDX Bridge Festival’s collaborative team of artists will create a 3D “optical illusion” installation with inexpensive materials, using the Willamette River Bridges as subject matter. By projecting images of the bridges from a fixed point, fixed spans artists can recreate the outlines of the image with masking tape on the surfaces of the atrium. Thus, as a visitor moves around the atrium, the images shift into and out of focus. Portland City Hall, with the Fixed Spans art installation, will give creative reverence to its bridges for nearly a month, so make sure you make it.
