There is a well-known saying, “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.” It is the first place the hospital patients will actually make contact with the facility and the last place they encounter as they leave.
“Harmonic Grove:OLOLCH” is the entrance/exit “experience” to this new state childrens hospital. The piece is composed of a 4000 sq. ft. colored glass canopy and seating together with interactive light/sound elements around around each of the canopy columns.
The Sound-score will be composed of ever-changing melodic and environmental sounds indigenous the Louisiana area. As in many of my works, there will also be a “Riddle” that will be placed on a small plaque near the canopy. IF a person deciphers the riddle and plays the “handprints” in the columns in a certain order, the piece will answer with a short “dance” of its own.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ 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.
