"Apogee" is a stainless steel sculpture measuring 6' x 20' x 6.5' and weighing 3,800 pounds.
The original concept began with the idea that healthy minds, bodies and spirit are equally important to our well being. The sculpture is a beacon for the main entrance of El Camino Hospital and is intended to engage viewers and invite contemplation.
The commissioners wanted a sculpture of scale to compliment the architecture and landscape while serving as a way finding element. Also, it was important that the work conceptually emphasized well being and healing.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
