Twenty heavily perforated convex aluminum discs of varying size lit from behind with colored LED light engines.


The goals of this artwork were to bring light and interest into I highly traveled yet dim and underutilized space within the Washington, DC Metro transit system. The overall design of the artwork was based around those goals and to this day the space is much more vibrant and inviting due to the installation


The artist Michael Enn Sirvet designed the artwork. Lighting designer Alexander Cooper aided in the creation of the lighting scheme, and a high-tech metals fabricator constructed the aluminum dish shaped elements.
