Materials include: Dichroic laminated Acrylic, stainless steel frame and programmable RGB LED's. Dimensions: L 28' x W 10' x H 4'. The sculptures steel frame and Dichrolaminated acrylic components were produced on computer-programmed laser cutting machines. To enable the owner to control the RGB LEDs the displays are pre-programmed using Lumenplay.
Our Goal was to create a signature landmark Public Art Sculpture for The Castle and the Short North Arts District. A dynamic light sculpture that instills in viewers a sense of joy, and identity, belonging and attachment.
The collaborative process evolved somewhat circuitously. In response to the Short North Alliance’s (SNA) call for proposals we studied the area, its future development plans and met with the first architectural team review the construction docs. Our proposal did not win the competition.
However, when the winning project could not be built, we presented Jubilation to the building’s owner developer and received the commission. The We worked closely with the Area Commission, building’s owner, engineers to integrate the work into the structure. The SNA became the projects owner and coordinator for funding and permitting.
As clients and visitors pass by and sit beneath Jubilation, they enjoy an infinite interplay of color and light reflections and transmissions on the sidewalk, building and each other.

[ 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.
