380 elements steel with polyurethane paint, 25' long 7' high
Explore the Wave! The Wave at the Cosmopolitan represents the excitement of this playfully elegant place. The Wave is comprised of 380 unique elements; each unique and different like the stream of humanity that meets in Las Vegas to enjoy the taste of a Cosmopolitan. Like life, The Cosmo Wave, undulates to the rhythm of our breath.
A group of petals well conceived create a flower. A grouping of flowers create a bouquet. Elements built one by one to the rhythm of my breadth, my thoughts, my feelings, at one or another moment, take this or that form. Slowly the ingredients, metal and movement, pins and paint, imagination, lights and shadows, come together to create a splash of color that is bigger than the sum of its parts.
Explore the Wave! It takes different forms from close and far.
Explore the elements, each a piece of art. Like the waves in the sea and within our body, no two are ever the same.
The wave is inspired by my series Levitation that has origin in my interest in suspending objects against gravity.
The series Levitation by Zammy Migdal had its origin in Zammy’s interest in suspending objects against gravity. Levitation, from the Latin levitas or lightness, is the process by which an object is suspended against gravity. The illusion of levitation is created by the relationships among metal foregrounds, attaching pins, spaces, light and shadows. The work is inspired by the colors and experiences of traveling to places like India, Israel and Brazil as much as by the spaces for which they are commissioned.

[ 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.
