About the Work
The title of Sean's piece is “Wunderkammer.” The inspiration for this work is drawn from the projection site itself, which will use two projections across the building’s corner to create an anamorphic 3D illusion. A digitally animated ‘mural’ will open a succession of sliding panels and portals revealing a series of wondrous objects and wintry worlds within.
