Overview

A double exposure is typically associated with an analog technique of taking multiple photographic exposures on top of a single frame of film. The resultant image then exhibits the characteristics of each exposure, superimposed into a single photograph. This large-scale relief sculpture, integrated into the new Kaiser Permanente center, uses two photographs of the natural environment of the Tri-Valley area to create a visually kinetic composition. The first image, as seen when looking west, depicts a golden canopy of leaves taken from the underside of a tree in autumn, while a second image, seen when looking east, depicts a sunny, cloud-filled sky.

Goals

Integration into the Kaiser Permanente facade and the surrounding environment was an integral goal of this project.
