PROJECT PROFILE:

Artist: Sandra Fettingis
Title: Moving Right Along
Materials: Aluminum Tube, LEDs, Acrylic, Catalyzed Paint
Fabrication + Installation: Demiurge
Engineering: Yetiweurks
Location: Denizen; Denver, CO 

Demiurge worked with Denver based artist Sandra Fettingis to fabricate and install her largest public artwork to date. Fabricated from aluminum, Moving Right Along spans 43 feet in height and nearly 20 feet in width, has 16 acrylic panels of two different colors, is lined with custom fit LED and coated in a two-part catalyzed paint. This work of art is a wonderful addition to both Denizen, the modern urban living complex and the Dever RTD - Alameda light rail station. 

From the artist:
My work is driven  by form and material, while quietly pointing at change, pattern breaking and law of attraction.  Interested in mindful living ideas and practices, these concepts and directions have have found their way into my visual practice by way of clean, formulated pattern work via sculptural work, installations and murals.  Employing feminine, yet strong shapes in visual systems, I strive to demonstrate change by layering and contrasting materials such as acrylic, styrene, wood, paper and paint, and utilize the laser for its precision, while formulating systematic guidelines, repetition and purposefully restrained color palettes.  I examine and apply the ways these visual items/systems/formulas can be altered, yet remain constant to convey the undeniable truth that things/life/people/environments change and evolve, and yet remain the same on some level.  I am interested in conveying these messages by way of site specific public installations and murals that transform environments that envelope viewers in beautifully activated, and thoughtfully changed spaces, that breaks one away from routine, where architecture and art seamlessly coexist.
