    This installation is the second in a series of site specific studies designed by Office dA. Situated within one of the main galleries at Pekin Fine Arts, and blurring the lines between art and architecture, ‘Voroduo’ is a monumental symmetrical construction comprised of 100’s of interlocking acrylic “cells” that responds to its context like an animate object twisting back onto itself and pulling the public around the piece. The public is encouraged to use the shape of the installation as a guide—visitors will enter on a path that moves around the object, allowing viewers to slowly discover its spatial, material, and atmospheric qualities before exiting the room on the opposite side. This variation in the cellular patterning produces a dynamic visual effect as the piece alternates between opaque and transparent, between dense patterning and sparse patterning.
