"San Antonio Colorline" is a site-specific computerized LED light sculpture located on the penthouse crown and the southern side of the clinical pavilion at the Brady Green Clinic of the University Health System of San Antonio, TX.
Some of the goals of this commissioned artwork were to not only make this University Health System Clinic stand out in the San Antonio skyline, but also bring a user friendly feeling to this health center. It was the desire of the Hospital administration for the artist to work hand in hand with the architects to integrate this artwork into the exterior artwork.
In order for this collaboration to work I had to work closely with the architectural team. Together we presented our ideas to the various stakeholders in the community, including hospital staff and city officials.
The Director of the University Health System as well as staff and board members are to be commended for embracing visual art as an integral part of the healing process.

[ 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.
