Art has the capacity to illustrate ideas and concepts through abstract shapes, as shown by the colorful installation by Lee Baker. This rainbow-inspired construction is entitled Refractive Monolith and consists of a 3D piece made of 10,000 meters of acrylic yarn that represents concepts of urbanization, aesthetics and looming catastrophy.

The vivid hues against the gray wall highlights the message the artist tries the communicate: “As with Baker’s paintings the joyous colors give a reassuring sense of security, while at the same time the spectrum of laser-like yarn represents the volatile infrastructure and relative weakness of buildings,” according to the press release. Even though this installations shines because of the colored wool, one can’t help but notice the dark patches around the corners that shows contrast.

Commissioned by The Future Tense, the Refractive Monolith by Lee Baker is an amazing structure that shows how two opposite forces—light and darkness—create beauty and harmony.
