The "Metaface" project is a welded metal sculpture intended to act as a mini theater. A dancer or movement performer dances inside the mask. backlights projected a shadow on resin panels that were inlaid inside the face while video projections covered the front. The dimensions are 8'H. x 7' W. x 5' D. It has a glossy white baked powder coating for bright video capture. This sculpture has gone on tour to festivals, shows, fairs, galleries, museums and events. It has also been showcased as a grounds sculpture.
This sculpture was designed and created to serve two functions. One was as A grounds sculpture and public art installation. The other was to incorporate performers and video projections to create a theatrical art experience. Both of which this piece has accomplished over the years since its execution.
This large face sculpture is the fifth one I have made. I plan to create more that incorporate plants, lighting, seating, water features, fire features. I have made one in stainless steel. I have plans to make some using bronze and copper.

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.
