Rachel Hayes Colorscape

Curation of Colorscape, an interactive textile installation by Rachel B. Hayes. Designed for the Quonset Hut at The Momentary, Bentonville, Arkansas, June 2023. Produced by Interform for ASSEMBLY, A Fashion & Art Biennial. 



Inspired by abstract geometric paintings, fiber art, stained glass windows, fashion design, and the colors and contour lines of the natural landscape, Rachel Hayes has created fiber-art installations that cover sand dunes, cross rivers, and billow over mountains. For this unique project, Hayes was commissioned by Interform to design a new site-specific installation in the Quonset Hut.

“My thoughts were to create a color field installation that would cascade, billow, and 'bop' through the long room…using a range of tones, colors, opacities, and referencing the idea of 'color blocking', a fashion term, we can look through the work, and to our surrounding environment, as well as walk around and touch - the colors change throughout the day along with the ever changing skies and wind. At night the piece will glow from within for all to see.”
