Representing the dynamic energy and growth of Shenzhen, Australian artist James Tapscott collaborated with UAP to create Diaphanous Bloom — an 8.5m tall permanent sculpture for the Shenzhen MixC World development in China. Fabricated from mirror polished stainless steel, Tapscott’s work takes the form of a geometric tree sculpture, elegantly rising from the ground and twisting into an overhead canopy of branches.
Positioned at a key pedestrian intersection, Tapscott’s work creates visuals of swirling foliage by spraying mist into the surrounding air. Coupled with the sculpture’s programable lighting, Diaphanous Bloom is in a constant state of change, responding to cultural events and holidays through lighting effects during both night and day.
