Overview

Steel, paint, powdercoat, embedded LED ground lights. 30' x 20' x 20'

Goals

Sculpture for the Park Ave/Oak Grove light rail station in Portland, OR. This arching canopy sculpture is sited in a large plaza and serves as an iconic gathering place for the community. The laser jet cut metal of the canopies, with patterns of oak leaf venation, create dynamic shadows. Lights integrated into the plaza for Bower were designed to create a dramatic presence at night.

Process

I worked with community groups, project designers, project engineers, and TriMet staff to develop this artwork.
