“Transparent Opacity” invites visitors to become part of the installation. By moving slowly or quickly through the room, wearing bright or subdued clothing, or even looking or engaging with the structures, patrons of Swarovski Crystal Worlds have a direct effect on the artwork. And, they change the impression the piece makes on other observers.
Swarovski initially partnered with Levy in 2009 to create a piece for the Swarovski Crystal Palace. Titled “Osmosis,” the work was inspired by Swarovski’s iconic chaton crystal formation. Replete with a specially woven 80-foot-long Tai Ping carpet and giant wireframe structures, this series of installations transports us to a distant world of magnificent wonder. The installation was initially featured in Milan and Vienna Design Week.
Swarovski continued its partnership by enlisting Levy to create a jewelry collection for its Atelier Swarovski line in 2011 and again in 2013.
