Color Bars – American Psychological Association (APA) Conference Center Installation


Edmond van der Bijl: APA Wall Installation

Project brief:
Create a colorful installation for the main wall of the APA’s Capitol View Conference center.

The main wall at the APA’s Capitol View Conference center faces a wall of windows leading to an outside terrace with a view of the Capitol in the background. The hallway that is formed between these two “walls” serves as a transitional walkway between the entrance and the “main” conference room. The piece on the wall, created from a series of two-sided triangular aluminum structures, leads the visitor from one space to the next and echo the concept of transition by changing as the viewer walks through the hallway.

Understanding the Structure:
The easiest way to visualize the piece is by imagining the triangular packaging of a series of Toblerone (chocolate) bars, hanging vertically and flush against a wall, in a line. If you are facing this structure and move to the left or right, your perspective changes and you see more of one side than the other.

Red and Yellow:
The color palette is inspired by conversations with the client on previous visits during which the color red and yellow were expressed as attractive colors.

Alternative Color Palettes:

Alternative color palettes available.

Painted/laminated aluminum.

Installation video and photos for “You don’t actually think…” By Edmond van Der Bijl. Pizza boxes with letters carved out of them are configured into a grid to create the phrase: “You don’t actually think anyone is going to read this do you? Well, maybe at the opening but don’t forget, at the end of the day, this is just art in a lobby”.
The installation was created as part of the NoMa “Lobby Project” with the WPA and DC Office of Planning.

Everyday materials are often overlooked. Our familiarity with them desensitizes us to their visual and physical presence as they fade into the background of our lives. Seeking out and reinventing these objects is the guiding force behind my work. I start with a series of simple elements and transform them through pattern and repetition into a greater cohesive whole.
