This piece is a modular interactive, experiential work. It modifies to different conditions depending on the site condition. As users touch the buttons in the center they create a myriad of light pattern throughout the piece.
I aspire to create work that unifies people in the experience of the art and each other. The goals are always the same in my work, intrigue people to come into the work, communicate with others and lower our guard to find a common place of interest and exploration.
I pride myself as being able to do all aspects of the work I do, this piece was one of those situations where I made everything myself. But I love the process of collaborating with other designers, vendors, and specialists to create stronger results.
This piece is intended to celebrate curiosity and be e beacon for people to come and release the chaos of our lives and appreciate the subtleties of light and color.

[ 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.
