Daniela Schönbächler was commissioned to create an artwork for the Wilder Walk passageway, part of the redevelopment of the Quadrant by Dixon Jones Architects.  

 

Timelines is a light installation encased within layered glass panels.  The movement of the light echoes the passage of the pedestrian through the walkway and creates, in the words of the artist, 'an experience indicative of a more natural environment'.  The deployment of glass, which resonates for Schönbächler as 'a most ancient yet contemporary material', has allowed the artist to create a variety of depths throughout the piece, complementing the effect of the light.

 

This work was a collaborative project with Dixon Jones Architects and is part of The Quadrant Public Art Programme curated and managed for The Crown Estate by Modus Operandi.
