CORD - Myriad

CORD

Myriad is an inhabitable sculpture that captures a wide and ever changing series of vistas from the spectacular surroundings, to create a dynamic multi-perspective collage that constantly shifts in relation to the visitors’ movement around and within the sculpture.

Myriad has been commissioned by Aldeburgh Music and Suffolk Coastal District Council to join the outdoor sculpture collection at Snape Maltings alongside existing works by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Sarah Lucas and Alison Wilding. The sculpture has been designed by CORD, in response to the brief for a sculpture that “offers a vantage point across the marshes at Snape and a new view over this flat and beautiful landscape”.

Standing tall on the Henry Moore Lawn, Myriad holds an array of mirrors high above visitors’ heads reflecting views of the surrounding landscape down to earth. Below several of the high level mirrors are further reflector panels positioned to create a series of large periscopes. These large reflector panels also provide cross bracing within the structure allowing the slender 80x80mm SHS columns to reach 8875mm in height. The low level reflector panels have been detailed with industrial rubber inserts along all edges to increase visual contrast and also to minimise injury to visitors that may walk into these panels whilst distracted by the reflected views above.

The floor of the sculpture is formed with flamed black granite slabs inserted between the expressed stainless steel structure. Shallow ramps have been incorporated at two locations to allow wheelchair access inside the sculpture.
