The sculpture will "live" as a visual crossroad; a welcoming beacon and a focal perspective point as if all trajectories of travel converge into one. The 19ft sculpture's immediate vibrancy is embodied by an upward sequence of 250 light-filled, filigree steel elements and 300ft of bent steel tubing.
As a symbol of growth, renewal and continuum, sculpture's ascendant cascades of light culminate in a sun, oriented to both airport's interior and GSP's unique nature-saturated exterior. Much like people in an airport, the beams of light - veritable comets, converge into a single apex, only to disperse - ad infinitum - at its next level. Like the flow of water, Waterfall of Light aspires to be a never-ending gesture of movement, and a wellspring of life.
Continuous and effective collaboration with GSP executive leadership in the face of CEO Dave Edwards as the principal client, as well as engineering and fountain teams, led by Didier Nobels.
Waterfall of Light is part of the $125 m WINGSPAN renovation of GSP air Terminal. Greenville's Upstate Business Journal called it in its May 26 Issue "..a centerpiece of the Terminal's renovation".

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ 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.
