PSFK previously covered Kolonihavehus, the colorful, eye-catching outdoor sculpture installation created by New York based artist, Tom Fruin constructed from hand-cut and hand-welded steel picture frames which have been arranged to hold a single piece of found plexiglass. Kolonihavehus is brought to life by Copenhagen-based CoreAct with performances featuring the poetry of Vagn Steen, computer-controlled light sequences by Nuno Neto and a sound installation by Astrid Lomholt. By using Plexiglas/Perspex from an old storehouse, Fruin created a house as a large mosaic installation where light and sounds constantly change. The artist chose to display the project alongside the riverfront plaza, as a juxtaposition and contextual response to the multi-colored lights found downtown at night. The installation’s form of a simple house offers an appealing visual and lighting effect close to a stained glass window when the night falls.
