About

This artwork is part of the River of Light Trail taking place across Liverpool Waterfront 21 October - 6 November.

ARTIST NAME: Atelier Sisu

“Ephemeral” or “Efímero” in Spanish, is an adjective,meaning the quality of being fleeting or vanishingquickly; impermanence.Evanescent is an immersive, light and sound temporarypavilion-esque environment.The work explores the fragility and temporary nature of the world around us. As the global pandemic arose in 2020, the artists sought a way to represent this new understanding of fragility. The bubble was the prefect representation of this beauty and transience. The use of dichroic film creates the illusion of the bubble-like form.The original meaning of dichroic, from the Greek “dikhroos” meaning two-coloured, refers to an optical device which can split a beam of light into two beams with differing wavelengths. These properties give the dichroic film its unique aesthetic effects, mimicking those of the bubble.

Evanescent is a larger-than-life bubble artwork. Standing at 8m tall, the audience is invited to walk underneath the bubble structures. The material of the artwork is iridescent in the sunlight. When darkness falls, internal lights illuminate bubbles in vibrant multi colours along side an accompanying etherial soundscape.

This artwork features audio, an etherial, mystical soundscape of abstract and blended sounds. The sounds grow and shrink with the colouration of the sculpture.
