Visually stimulating installations usually seek to disorient the viewer by challenging the optic nerve's ability to receive and interpret information. Designer Rafael De Cárdenas aims to do just that via his immersive 60s-inspired, mirrored and heavily patterned artwork that is located inside Cadillac's Lower Manhattan gallery.
Called 'Amaze,' Rafael De Cárdenas' installation is made possible by the collaborative efforts of the designer, the car dealership, and New York arts publications 'Visionaire.' It consists of four independently designed rooms, each with a different element that is characteristic of disorienting and overstimulating installations. In addition to the visual stimulus, the contemporary work of art taps into composer and vocalist Sahra Motablebi for an audio composition that suits the spatial design masterpieces.
