One Frost is the operations center for Frost Bank. This work is part of a large collection on 4 floors of their new
Time is Money is an analog timekeeping device displaying hours, minutes and seconds. The view infers the time from
the relationship of the "hands" to unmoving index marks, just like on a standard round clock. Hours on the left.
Minutes on the right. Seconds and index marks occupy the middle 3 stacks.
Some of the goals were: creating a pleasant workspace for Frost employees, building a beautiful and functional piece of art, maintaining the connection between the purpose of the space with the theme of the artwork.
An art consultant contacted the artist to pitch an idea to the client. Once the design was approved, the construction crew integrated the structure for the piece into the building, in terms of structural, mechanical, and electrical engineering.

[ 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.
