Scottish contemporary artist and 2005 Turner Prize nominee Jim Lambie’s new work Spiral Scratch brings a new sensory dimension to Pacific Place. This site-specific work juxtaposes an intricate, rhythmic floor pattern with a collection of 15 ladders in vivid hues, creating a bold kaleidoscopic interaction of colour, shape and form that gives rise to some surprising perspectives.
