Latin origin of “anticipation”, a fitting title for this work which frames the entrance to the Concert Hall. Musically, it is “the introduction in a composition of part of a chord which is about to follow in full”. Visually, it lends anticipation to the experience as it draws its dynamic form from the Concert Hall’s own pipe organ with the materials reflecting those of musical instruments, arranged here in the tradition of the symphony orchestra.

Intervallum breaks down an octave into colorful intervals. The rhythm of the colored patterns lends motion and interpretations to the piece, allowing background colors to migrate through the piece, like companion tones in music. An interval is simply described as “the difference in pitch between two musical sounds” but originates from the Latin “intervallum” - the space between ramparts. This piece also spans the spatial chasm in the hallway with a portion installed along the glass wall above.
