Sacro Bosco is made up of two wall related kinetic pieces. Each consists of dye sublimation printed aluminum panels which are attached to the wall. In front of these back wall panels 13 vertical double sided panels ranging in size from 10”x 8’ to 6”x 8’ rotate slowly. They are animated only by ambient air currents. Directly in front of these panels is a frame which is also suspended from the ceiling. The gradations along with the movement creates a confusion of perception so that the viewer loses track of foreground and background. Watch the video.
These pieces were created for an exhibition in Venice in conjunction with the Architectural Biennale. It was important for me to use colors that such Venetian artists as Giovanni Bellini used in his paintings.

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.
