Capital One wanted a signature artwork for their new headquarters in McLean, VA. In 2017, I created Transmigration, a glass tile mosaic for their event space. The mosaic is 45 feet wide and 12 feet high.
Integrating the design was important for this frequently-trafficed event space. The building houses a data center so my digitally-inspired imagery reflected the building's use. The mosaic depicts a gravitational force forming loops and arrays of particles emanating from the ceiling of a 12’ x 45’ wall. Pixellated mosaic tesserae travel and traverse a long horizontal space creating a powerful sense of movement to enliven a large atrium for the bank’s data center.
I was contacted by Sheryl Feigel, an art consultant for Capital One with whom I've worked for years. She presented my work and facilitated details such as funding and installation. She is a pleasure to work with and we completed the mosaic in record time for an early installation.

[ 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.
