Sheila Hicks has but together an architectural installation titled Seance for the Design Miami event. Her work consists of fabric tufts all done in colorful hues.

Wool, linen and cotton are some of the materials used for the exhibition, and these items are laid against a black wall for a stronger effect. According to DesignBoom, "the material can thus be thought of as a translation of color into a three-dimensional form, which Hicks compounds through her site-specific intervention for the Herzog & de Meuron-designed exhibition space."

For those walking into the space it's hard not to notice the exhibition. The bright hues capture one's attention immediately, which for an artist is certainly a compliment. The work also has a hanging section of fabric, all colorfully unwound in the middle of the room.
