Overview

This site-specific sculpture consist over 36 translucent colored panels, floating amidst the atrium traversing across 5 stories of glass, light, shadows, and reflections, providing an ever changing view and an interplay of overlapping and transforming colors. (The most dynamic experience will in the elevator ride!)

Goals

Integration into the space was very important. Working with contractors and designers to install the work was an invigorating challenge that required flexibility, but ended in the success of my original vision for the space.

Process

The installation was a success and overall a good experience. Working closely with the designers, architects, and contractors the project was installed efficiently and on time.
