Loop is an installation located at the Gana Art Center in Seoul, South Korea, created in collaboration between and . The installation features four distinct metal tracks that intertwine throughout the white exhibition space. 100,000 marbles introduced one at a time per every five seconds brings the installation to life.
The marbles are formed in white glass, and proceed along 400 meters of track that is constructed in a light blue powder-coated aluminum. Co-founder of Snarkitecture Daniel Arsham states, “Our intention was to create a contemplative environment with Loop – a space that was not immediately understood upon entering. While we wanted the design to be playful, we were mindful of creating a work that provided an escape. It was important to offer a setting and feeling that were completely new and inspiring to visitors.”
The COS x Snarkitecture installation is open between 10am-7pm every day at the Gana Art Center, located in the Pyeongchang-dong area of the city, known for its arts and culture. The exhibition centre was designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte and is surrounded by the Bugak mountains.
