Helen DeVos childrens Hospital Proposal

  1. 1. Project: Helen DeVos Childrens Hospital Project Location: 100 Michigan NE Grand Rapids, Michigan 49507 Proposed site: Project F : Beacons Artist: T’Alyne 1425 Margaret SE, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49507 www.talyne.org studio@talyne.org 616 304 6821 Architect: Dave Huizenga, Integrated A/E, Grand Rapids, Michigan Fabricator: Dan Carlson Design, Ada, Michigan 9/29/09 t'alyne copyright 2009 1
  2. 2. Proposed site: Project F : Beacons T’Alyne 1425 Margaret SE 49507 www.talyne.org studio@talyne.org 616 304 6821 Statement My work focuses on the importance of mark making and how this establishes relationships and bridges between our understanding of the environment and self. Flickering between two- dimensional and three-dimensional experiences my current work addresses the conceptual spirit of water. Living in Michigan surrounded by fresh water I continually observe and am fascinated by its constantly changing form while it trickles, seeps, and flows. I discover patterns when it freezes. I am spellbound when it floats in the air. Water is capable of great power and destruction. It is beautiful as it filters, reflects, refracts, and interacts with light. It represents a precise process, an exchange of energy that has its own natural timing and organization. Studio View during production, Vermont 9/29/09 t'alyne copyright 2009 2
  3. 3. Proposed site: Project F : Beacons T’Alyne 1425 Margaret SE 49507 www.talyne.org studio@talyne.org 616 304 6821 Artistic goals: I believe it is important to encourage cultural connections throughout our society establishing value and ensuring a reasonable participation in the philanthropic process for the arts and humanities. We must move toward an understanding of the value of art in our communities and family life. During this project, I am interested in embracing and highlighting our connections with the water around and near us through identifying its beauty, fragility, and its ethereal aspects. Through my work as an artist, I want to be part of the wave of collective consciousness implementing awareness. Building up our inventory of experiences that support the value of creativity and cultural heritage to the lives of people and their communities is essential. All life absolutely depends on and receives pleasure from water in some form. 9/29/09 t'alyne copyright 2009 3
  4. 4. Proposed site: Project F : Beacons T’Alyne 1425 Margaret SE 49507 www.talyne.org studio@talyne.org 616 304 6821 Why important to artist? Water is a precious resource that we need to protect. Being a responsible steward of our resources is key. Environmental awareness and protecting our natural resources are crucial if we are to survive. As a culture we are too busy to notice the delicacy of this complete system of life. Through my work as an artist, I view this project as a means to highlight these subtle spaces that filter and support water. It is crucial that we attend to the beauty, tranquility, and serenity in order to return to the center of balance. When we take care of our water we directly impact ourselves.

  8. 8. Proposed site: Project F : Beacons T’Alyne 1425 Margaret SE 49507 www.talyne.org studio@talyne.org 616 304 6821 Site Specifics for Project F: Beacons Create site-specific sculptures that mimic the wide range of contour lines found in the surrounding landscapes, highlighting the views of the Grand River from the hospital.

  9. 9. Proposed site: Project F : Beacons T’Alyne 1425 Margaret SE 49507 www.talyne.org studio@talyne.org 616 304 6821 Materials Description: – Fabricate the frame structures out of anodized aluminum and steel cable. The use of anodized aluminum provides a lightweight, long lasting, durable, and low maintenance material. – Imbed image and color onto fiberglass using water based varnish, UV resins and pigments. The use of fiberglass provides a durable lightweight, low maintenance, fire retardant material that introduces elegant color into the hospital environment. – Led lights will hang in the interior of each Beacon. The use of Led lights will provide a long lasting illumination source that will engage the fiberglass, flooding the space with color. In addition, enhancing the Beacons visibility from the exterior of the building. – Each Beacon will be motorized for ease of raising and lowering objects if Led lights ever need maintenance. 9/29/09 t'alyne copyright 2009 9
