Convergence, 12' h x 8' l x 9' d; fabricated stainless steel & bronze
The client was seeking a gateway sculpture that would invite creative exploration and engage both residents and the greater community. In addition, the client desired a sculpture that would integrate with the building's overall theme of photography, which included its namesake of "Aperture" and the fine art photography that adorns the walls of the interior space.
The project commenced during the per-construction phase of the building. The artist had extensive conversation with client, architect, structural engineers and landscape architects to coordinate all aspects of presentation and installation.
In the artist's words, "Convergence celebrates the moment of commitment; fragile as it waits to become, yet strong as it tips into reality. Like the shutter of a camera snatching a single moment in time and giving it permanence.

[ 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.
