Profoundly connected with sculptural works of art, Alison also creates sculptural/ Installation art. As art connects the meaningful integral part of life through inviting spectators to be active participants in visual experience, Alison is deeply enticed and constantly working in the studio towards further creation of mixed mediafor public art andinstallations.
As an artist of who is profoundly moved in creation of installations, she recognizes the significance of public art and sculpture as it invites movement around the form and encourages spectators to notice space around the art form and brings the use of space to explicit uniqueness and value. This is supported by previous literature and in the current research (Armstrong et al., 1976; Bradley, 1973; Buskirk, 2003; Geist, 1967; Museum of Contemporary Art, 1998; Robinette, 1976; Rubenstein, 1995; Senie, 1992; Serra, 1994).
Sculptural art entices viewer perceptual attention, which integrates the visual, intellectual, and emotional through non-verbal means (Arnheim, 1954; Csikszentmihalyi & Robinson, 1990; Ho Yu, 2003; Kelly, 2004; Museum of Contemporary Art, 1998; Robinette, 1976; Senie, 1992; Serra, 1994). Public art, sculpture, and installations concentrate energy and power through speaking to the viewer with the gift of pleasure and insight (Geist, 1967).
