The client wanted a color kinetic and music driven light sculpture to provide a pleasing aesthetic to the entry to the Music Hall entertainment venue on board the Oasis of the Seas. The ship was undergoing a $165 million updating and this piece was planned as an iconic new artwork for the ship.
The primary goal was to integrate kinetic color and music into the entertainment venue.
I worked up 8 possible approaches to the artwork and submitted them to a team at International Corporate Art which is the Oslo based art consultant that provides artworks to many RCC cruise ships. The team chose one of the designs for further development and I worked with MRD Lighting in New York to integrate the RGB strip lighting in the artwork into the available technology on the ship.

[ 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.
