Featured Artists & Sculptures

OGE Group – House of Cards

House of Cards is beautiful and joyful during the daytime and turns into an exciting lightshow at night. The playful idea of creating a House of Cards is not about fragility, disaster or crumbling. It is about the motivation within every child: to dare, to have courage, to create and to challenge one’s skills by aiming to build as high as possible. This installation reminds us to use determination, patience and skill but also belief, trust and to keep the big vision in mind.

Hotaru Visual Guerrilla - Biotechture

Biotechture is a projection mapping artwork that celebrates the profound connection between nature and architecture. Nature has always been a source of limitless inspiration to human beings. Throughout history, architects have frequently turned to nature for inspiration, creating visionary sketches that seamlessly merge organic aesthetics with functional design, forging a sustainable ecosystem where all elements mutually flourish. This artwork illustrates the fusion of architectural frameworks and organic elements, demonstrating their symbiotic coexistence.

Martin Taylor - Touch the Sky

"Touch the Sky" depicts a woman with outstretched winged arms and flowing tail feathers preparing to take flight. The eyes are closed in a serene dreamlike trance. The legs and feet push off against the stylized rock beneath. The sculpture serves as a visual metaphor for taking leaps of faith to achieve our dreams and fly.

Josh Miller & Angela Fraleigh, Sound the Deep Waters

Sound the Deep Waters is a projection-based art installation that invites visitors to submit secret messages that are translated into Victorian flower language before their eyes. Participants can scan a QR code onsite to submit anything from love letters and prose to inside jokes. Visitors will watch the screens in front of them as their private words become bold, brilliant, larger-than-life floral compositions associated with their messages' meanings.
