Process

Three concepts were created. Two were related to the client’s business and one was abstract. The abstract concept was chosen. The artist worked with the art consultants and they interacted with the client.
Sample lenses were sent to the consultant so the client could see first-hand the materials, installation process and interactivity. This also helped convey the work’s durability and longevity.
The lenses were installed with stand-off pins to give the feeling of depth and lightness.
