Made By Dusk is a space inspired by the Nordic Goddess, Freya, the untamed goddess of love, war, beauty, gold, and transformation. Upon entering the installation, the visitor is met with walls covered in flickering light and shadows cast from suspended golden wire sculptures shaped as Freya’s chariot-pulling cats. Beyond lies a great gray and golden hall to evoke the in-between space of twilight or dusk, with walls draped in massive tapestries surrounding a floating amphitheater of seats facing a central throne. In Norse mythology, Freya’s Hall of Seats would receive fallen warriors, here it is a place of refuge and inward reflection and gathering of feminine forces and transformative powers needed to battle inequities and injustices and be the catalyst for transformational social change.
