This project consists of 90 window panels, broken tempered glass and sheets of plate containted the design in the middle. The basis of the design was to illustrate tribal healing with different kinds of leaves and plants. These windows illuminate a large area in the Mohegan Sun Casino. 1000 Sqaure Feet.
Our goals were to use the existing design and layout of the casino to create a seamless, but intriguing addition to this large space. The casino asked that we symbollically represent tribal healing in our artwork.
The collaboration process was a very interesting dynamic since we were working with different firms that are located all over the United States. This created an open line of communication with frequent collaboration. The casino chose us for this job since we could integrate leaves and plants that would adequately represent tribal healing and earth. Once we came to an agreement about the design specifics, things ran smoothly.

[ 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.
