Crimson Cascade is a steel and glass suspended installation approximately 20ft tall x 12ft diameter. The installation is comprised of 450 hand blown glass vessels, each LED illuminated from within and weighs approximately 2,500 lbs.
The primary intent for this installation was to provide a dynamic work of art that activates the circuitous space. I drew upon Le Corbusier's Golden Ratio Modular, extruded and mirrored these spiral proportions to establish a balance between the art, surrounding architecture, and the viewer.

[ 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.
