High Chromium 316L Stainless Steel 16' x 16' x 1' Fabricated Boxes with High Resistant Blue Color Transparent Pain
The Client's vision was to produce a Wall Sculpture for a new contemporary Building installed on the outside that would catch the eye of Pedestrians and Drivers alike.
The client supplied a CAD layout and shape of each box design. The client also supplied the orientation of each box in the group. We then worked with the information to design a cut layout for the water jet and a press design for the press brake to bend the boxes. Each box was also welded at specific locations. ART collaborated with Providence Engineers to design a mounting structure that was light weight yet strong as the sculpture was to be mounted on an outside wall with weight restrictions. An aluminum structure was designed to mount the SS polished polychrome blue boxes to. It was also designed to fit on a semi truck trailer without going over the size limit. Alleviating the need to get permits. In between each box is a plastic barrier to keep the coating from scratching as the boxes were bolted together. Each box was individually coated with a transparent blue coating and sealed with multiple clear coats.

[ 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.
