50’ x 20’ x 20’ – Mirror polished stainless steel – A body of luminous radiation projecting from the corner of a building, the piece conjures images of the human aura in historical religious artwork or images of the effects of magnetic forces in scientific literature. As the viewer moves along the boulevards, the reflection of moving cars and changing lighting conditions transform the appearance of the artwork into effervescent light.
