Designed for congregation, conversation, and study, Liz Collins – Energy Field is the first in a new Tang series that will ask artists to imagine what a museum community space can be. Located on the Tang’s mezzanine, Energy Field is a long-running installation created as a lounge and social space for visitors and students. Energy Field is designed to revitalize the lounger/visitor through color, shape, and texture. It is a new age crystal cave viewed through a pop post-modern lens. With exploding supernovas on the ceiling, chevrons on the wall, and stripes on the floor, the brash sharpness is offset by plush carpeting, raining yarn, and upholstered furniture. The room will also feature a red leather plinth containing a selection of books, magazines, objects, and plants, chosen by a roster of artists and thinkers in a rotating Plinth Guest Artist Project. Energy Field is a liminal space intended to invite both prolonged exploration and rest. A mirrored wall extends the room into the next dimension while at the same time functioning as a grounding device, i.e., “I am here now. Here I am.”
