A back-lit, shingled light wall composed of over 300 acrylic panels. Each panel has one corner lifted, as if a page turning in a book. Multiplied across the 40 foot wall, this slight move imbues the wall with a depth and complexity. Upon entering the courtyard the wall feels whole yet rippled. Moving to the opposite end and looking back towards the entry, the wall seems to expand and dissolve as each panel opens a view to the lighting strips contained within.
The installation has served as the centerpiece and backdrop for the Materials & Applications Summer Lecture Series, defining a space for a crowd of local design enthusiasts gathered to see the presentations of other young architects and designers.

[ 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.
