Fred Eversley on Untitled (1971) | Space Shifters

Key Words:

Space Shifters came to our Hayward Gallery in September 2018. A major group exhibition of sculptures and installations that explored perception and space, it included the work of more than 20 artists.

Among them was the aerospace engineer turned artist, Fred Eversley. In this short video he introduces his work Untitled (1971), which appeared at the exhibition.

Constructed using a repurposed turntable originally used by the American military, Untitled (1971) is a parabolic lens made from violet, amber and blue polyester resin.

It’s a perfect parabolic lens, the only shape that transforms all sources of energy into a single focal point.

As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a huge chunk of our income. But now they’ve stopped. And it's a huge worry to us, and the people we work with. We all need the escape of art and culture; it can inspire and unite us. So please – if you can afford to – consider a donation to the Southbank Centre today, to help us be there for you in the future.
